I am always a sucker for a “cafeteria style” indoor market with a long line of food stalls, no matter how touristy it may seem. Napa’s Oxbow Public Market did not disappoint as it introduced me to one of the best beef sandwiches I have ever tried from the delicious Five Dot Ranch and Cookhouse’s stall. They also have Kara’s Cupcakes, which I have only tried in San Francisco and Carmel before, and was excited to find them in Napa!
A messy sandwich = a tasty sandwich
Besides restaurants, the market has an actual fresh produce station as well as other outposts of local Napa merchants.
It is a great little place that showcases some of the best food and people that Napa has to offer.
