  • We went on a weekday. There was plenty of parking, both by the market and across the street. They do share the lot with The Culinary Institute of America, so I would imagine that if there was an event it might fill up. Inside the market there are a couple dozen vendors/restaurants that share the space to sell their wares. It was like a mini farmer's market with fruits, veggies, cheeses, meats, spices, and small gifts. There was indoor and outdoor seating for the restaurants. Prices were on the higher side. Also, if you have small children, I would imagine that you would have to keep an eye on them because everything is displayed in a way that just makes you want to pick it up or at least touch it. Check their website for current offerings, specials, and events. There is also a path behind the market that you can walk along part of the Napa River. Also, like I mentioned, they are right across the parking lot from the CIA (Culinary Institute of America). If you have any foodies in your family, this is a really neat place to check out. They have a free culinary museum with all kinds of interesting kitchen gadgets.
  • Most interesting shopping in the area. The "market" is a bunch of smaller shops all open together offering gourmet food, produce, prepared food, meat, cheese, olive oil, spirits, home goods, beer and wine, rose slushies, seafood, pizza - the list goes on forever. If you're looking for a quick bite, fun gifts or souvenirs, or specialty gourmet groceries, this is the place for you. We had to take two tours through to see everything and I think we still missed a lot. Bustling energetic place!
  • We had lots of fun at this market - it has nice shops, wine and food. All of them are great quality and you will find lots of local businesses to be introduced to and support.
  • Oxbow is always a delight to visit with such a diverse selection of things to look at, eat, drink, buy and more! You can choose from seafood. Mexican food, a Jewish delicatessen, coffee, beer, burgers and fries, a bookstore and more!
  • What a great place diverse tenant mixture of local food vendors, artisan cafes and an organic produce outlet for local farms. Situated along the Napa river. Try “casa” for good Mexican food.
