Hawaii Mom Blog: Visit Napa: Oxbow Public Market

Visit Napa: Oxbow Public Market

After visiting a couple of outstanding wineries, my friend suggested to get a light lunch at Oxbow Public Market, located in downtown Napa.  The 40,000 square foot marketplace runs along the Napa River and features local food vendors, artisan cafes and organic produce. 

We made a beeline to Hog Island Oyster Co. where they serve fresh shellfish direct from their farm on Tomales Bay.  I absolutely loved it.  I'm not a huge oyster fan, but all of their oysters were so fresh and so delicious!  The wait line was pretty daunting, but it moved quickly.  After downing half a dozen oysters each, we all had the rustic seafood stew which was out of this world.  I loved the tomato based broth and the fish inside was soooooo good!  Their other popular dish is their clam chowder.  Highly recommend a stop here!

While my friends picked up some truffle salt, I stood in line to Kara's Cupcakes and got myself a mini carrot cupcake for dessert.  Yum!
