“Good selections”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

'Whole Spice Company' inside Oxbow Public market is a gem. I feel like I am in a candy store for adults. It's a tiny space filled with bottled spices from around the world. Took a whiff of truffle salt and couldn't resist getting some. My husband wanted some schezuan peppercorns..the numbing kind for his curry.
There are a good selection of eateries in this market.
I could easily see myself have lunch, dessert, tea and coffee.

“Public Market Supreme!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Calling all Foodies...this is your Siren call, and a Must See.
This is Napa's version of Philadelphia's Reading Terminal Market, but smaller, and much more West as opposed to East Coasty.
Many small stall/sellers run the gamut of foodstuffs and imbibe-ables. All locally made, all well done. A feast for the eyes as well as the taste-buds.
Suggestion...stop here for cheese/olives/nuts/fruits/crusty bread/ wine/ and CUPCAKES, and go find the perfect lookout spot for a picnic...it will be one of the highlights of your trip.
PS. Try the bottled Rose/Lemonade in the refrigerator case in the produce market at the front of the store...Heaven bottled!

“Great place to stop to or from wine country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Went with the family on the way to Napa and will always stop here now. There is something for everyone and you can get what you want from different places and still eat together. It is pricey but no more so than such yummy gourmet food would be anywhere else. We had oysters at hog island, some stinky French cheese, Kara's cupcakes and a yummy entre at pica pica. We didn't even try a quarter of what was offered. There is also pizza, tacos, gelato and a few more full service restaraunts. If you like the SF ferry building or Chelsea market then this place is for you. We will definately be back.

“Eclectic eating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

After a day at the vineyard we were famished. I had read reviews regarding this market and it exceeded all of my family's expectations. It was pricey but well worth the trip. There was every delectable item to eat. I let my eyes take a viewing- oysters organic everything - deserts. This was fantastic. Cupcakes for desert. No one wanted to leave! Hard to make a family of 5 happy but this place did it!!
