Oxbow has capitalized on the sweeping trend of one-stop-shop markets, offering a lively space to snack, drink, shop and kick back in Downtown Napa. If you’re here for a full meal, there are plenty of places to dine: Ca’ Momi, a pizzeria where you can snag Neopolitan-style pies and paninis; an offshoot of Gott’s Roadside, serving their signature burgers and ahi poke tacos; Hog Island Oyster company, where you can slurp down bivalves to your hearts content. But possibly the best part of Oxbow is wandering the vendor stalls for knickknacks and artisan goods. Napa Valley Distillery is a veritable library of shrubs, bitters and anything else you might want in a liquor store. At the Olive Press, you can sample dozens of olive oils and balsamic vinegars before landing on a couple to take home. Sampling is key here—you could practically make a day of it—but if you do want to rest and recharge between stalls, there are picnic benches both inside and outside to partake in some quality people watching.
