Napa’s Oxbow Market

Napa is magical. It is a truly special place. There is a romance in the air mixed with a small town feel and the energy of hard working people. I am in love. One of the special spots I look forward to visiting whenever I can is the Oxbow Market at the edge of the downtown center. It is an indoor market full of artisan vendors with everything from small batch food items to home goods and restaurants. It’s basically the shopping venue of my dreams and the perfect place to stop for picnic items or snacks for a day of wine tasting. I had the chance to visit this week and once again left as happy as could be. Until next time, Oxbow.

Didn't plan on sharing the cheese I bought, but it ended up being the best cheese I have Ever had in my entire life, if you see it, buy it!
