Northern California Store Review: Oxbow Public Market in Napa

While in Napa last weekend, we visited the new Oxbow Public Market in downtown Napa. Oxbow is a large food hall where everything on sale is food-related in some way; from spices to tea, to wine and kitchen antiques, to fresh fish and chocolates, they have it all.

The Oxbow Public Market is a smaller version of the Ferry Building Marketplace in San Francisco. There's a large wine and cheese shop with an outdoors deck overlooking the river, perfect for sitting on while sipping a glass of vinho verde. There are several eateries, specialty food markets, gourmet stores, and kitchen/food-related item shops.

Outside in the parking lot is a daily farmer's market where Napa residents can buy fresh local produce.
