Best To Do in Cali: Oxbow Public Market

Okay Okay! So I know that yesterday I blogged about Napa as a whole and now I’m about to rave about Oxbow Public Market, which is in Napa.  But trust me,  this place deserves its own accolades.

If you’ve ever been to the Ferry Terminal in San Francisco, this place is awesome little brother of that megahouse of deliciousness (that blog is coming soon). A large warehouse building, fitted with little food stands, Oxbow Public Market was everything we ever wanted from a late evening snack.

Remember how I mentioned Farmstead in my last post?  Well, as decadent as it was, we only ate appetizers and dessert.  So we were good and hungry for “real food” when we finally decided to head home.

This isn't the drip coffee I mention below.  It is the piece of art Mr. Grassroofs called a latte.

Ritual Coffee was a refreshing experience.  As I approached, I thought they were going make me answer for my political beliefs before serving me.  But everybody was friendly, and the barista made me a drip coffee.  Nobody has ever made me drip coffee before.  Did you know that drip coffee is more delectable than other coffee simply by the virtue that somebody made it by hand?  Truth.

We ate duck tacos.  And bison burritos.  It was the best weird mexican food I’d ever had.  Goat cheese on a taco?  Yes, please.

Are you going to Northern California?  Stop at Oxbow! Been to Oxbow?  What do you love about it?
