Oxbow Public Market Tours

Oxbow Public Market
Oxbow Public Market—with dozens of restaurants, food stalls, and shops—brings the bounty of Napa’s famed wine, food, and organic produce under a single roof. Open all day, it’s a one-stop shop for great food, to quickly experience the best of Napa Valley, or relax for a moment at this local gathering place before exploring the region.
 
The Basics
Oxbow Public Market, situated on a curve in the Napa River, is a good starting point for exploring the natural beauty of Napa and a great way to taste the flavors of the region in a compact and concise way. Get an insider’s view of wine country’s culinary scene. Tours typically include many opportunities to taste Oxbow’s many artisan goods and learn about everything from Fatted Calf's handcrafted salumi to Kara's Cupcakes to Three Twins Ice Cream, among many others.
 
You can tour the market on foot, independently or as part of a group, or visit as a stop on a Napa Valley wine trolley tour.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Ideal for those short on time to visit Northern California's wine country, Oxbow Public Market yields a bevy of tastes and experiences (Hog Island Oyster Bar is a must), and plenty of opportunities to purchase locally produced, packable, unique gifts.
  • Comfortable walking shoes, a good hat, sunscreen, and refillable water bottle are advisable at any time of year and a must when sitting at Oxbow Market's scenic outdoor deck.
  • From seated restaurants to walk-up counters, oysters and wine to cupcakes, there’s something here for everyone to eat and drink.
 
How to Get There
Situated east of downtown Napa on First Street past McKinstry Street, Oxbow Market is highly visible and easily accessible by foot from town. Walk over First Street Bridge, pass two blocks, and the market is on your left. If driving a car, there’s ample parking in an off-street, no-fee parking lot.
 
When to Get There
Oxbow comes alive in late spring when local produce is at its peak. Mornings are usually quieter with fewer crowds than later in the day. Tuesday is Locals' Night with happy-hour specials from 5 to 8pm. In September, Oxbow hosts its annual Fork It Over benefit, a fundraiser for the Community Action of Napa Valley (CANV) Food Bank. It includes a reception, garden tour, and 4-course dinner at the Culinary Institute of America.
 
Hog Island Oyster Bar
Stop by Hog Island Oyster Bar for small plates, a glass of wine, or the Hog Island sweets that give the company its name. For Locals’ Night on Tuesdays, chef’s choice half-price oysters from nearby Marin County, and beer and wine specials make a stop here a must.
Address: 610 & 644 1st Street, Napa 94559, USA
