Napa - Oxbow Public Market is ready and it is stunning

What a difference a week makes.

The only businesses that are still pending are Ritual Coffee Roasters, Kanaloa seafood market, Taylor’s and Rôtisario. The last was scheduled to open this week but the blackboard with menu items said next week.

What surprised me is that not everything is in the main building. Fatted Calf, Model Bakery and Taylor’s are in separate buildings on the side. Taylor’s does look like it will be ready soon after all.

At the door of the Oxbow Market (and on the website) is a schedule of when the remaining businesses will open. The fish market won’t open until April. Ritual won't open until May. You can get a cup of Pete's Coffee though at Model Bakery.

With everyone open and even on this cold rainy day … lots of people … this is a totally different place.

There are lots of tables where there were empty spaces. Even Pica Pica had quite the crowd.

The wine and cheese merchants are WONDERFUL !!! … !!!

This is such an intelligently thought out market after all. It will be amazing once the produce vendors show up regularly.

My house is almost the same distance from Ferry Plaza and Oxbow … let’s see what I should choose … in the next link
