Oxbow Public Market, Napa, CA

Oxbow Public Market Restaurant Review

: The forces behind San Francisco's Ferry Building Marketplace created a similar foodie's paradise in wine country, and it has turned out to be a natural fit. A daily farmers market with rotating purveyors welcomes visitors outside. Within the 40,000-square-foot barn-like structure, upscale shops showcase local artisan goods to stock your pantry and enrich your table. Browse and be seduced by fish, cheese and spice merchants, an outpost of Model Bakery, charcuterie from Fatted Calf, a branch of Sonoma's Olive Press, and Three Twins Organic Ice Cream. Dine on the deck overlooking the Napa River, perhaps choosing an all-American burger or an ahi version at a branch of Gott’s Roadside.
