Fork it Over is less than two weeks away. If you haven't purchased your tickets for the fourth annual Fork it Over dinner on September 12 to benefit the Napa Food Bank and the Napa Farmers' Market, don't wait any longer. We have lots of fun in store and the event is expected to sell out soon. 

Oxbow Produce & Grocery will become Hudson Greens & Goods and move into its new home this month. Sometime mid-September, it will close for a few days to make the big move, so check our Facebook page and website for updates. 

See you at the Market!

Napa Farmers Market
NAPA FARMERS' MARKET Napa Farmer's Market logo
Oxbow Public Market is proud to play host to the Napa Farmers' Market, which is open every Tuesday and Saturday from 8 am to 12:30 pm (May through October) in the south parking lot across from Oxbow. In addition to farm-direct produce, gourmet food and handmade crafts, the market also features live music, chef demos, children's activities and more. Click here for more information.
Standard is approaching its one-year anniversary on September 23! With only 11 feet of space, it's amazing how many fun items you can find there, including t-shirt designs from Napa artist Porous Walker. Plus, Standard just received a shipment of men's and women's t-shirts with the popular Napa Space design...did you know Napa Valley has its own special year-round swim team? 
GIFT OF OIL AND VINEGAROlive Press oil and vinegar set
One of the most classic combinations, balsamic vinegar and master blend extra virgin olive oil, are displayed in beautiful nesting stackable bottles with new packaging. Wonderful on their own or paired together, the "Master Blend Olive Oil & Classic Balsamic" stacker set from The Olive Press is a great gift idea.
Cate & Co.'s granola is chunky and crunchy, and loaded with fruit and nuts. Made in small batches with dried bing cherries, blueberries, almonds, pecans, coconut flakes, and gluten-free oats, it is a fantastic quick, nutritious breakfast with milk or almond milk in the morning, and also a perfect accompaniment to a cheese plate, or as a topping for yogurt and ice cream. Pack some in snack bags for school lunchboxes for a crunchy afternoon treat. We love the versatility of a bag of Cate & Co. granola and know you will too.
Oxbow Cheese & Wine Merchant is always on the hunt for interesting, unusual wines, and recently found a few cases of 2013 Tokaj Nobilis "Susugó" Furmint, Tokaj-Hegyalja, Hungary. If this fine white wine is representative of Hungary's future, then it is exciting to contemplate. The winemaker, Sarolta Bárdos, is a young woman and third generation in the business. Historically, the wines of Tokaj have been mostly sweet, age-worthy for decades, and with an international reputation. Furmint, however, lends itself well to drier styles. This one has the richness of a medium-bodied Chardonnay, but a spectrum of flavors more reminiscent of rich Loire Valley Chenin Blanc -- both fresh and bruised yellow apple, honey and quince, with a very long finish. Only three cases available, $22/bottle.
STUMPTOWN COLD-BREWED COFFEEModel Bakery cold-pressed coffee
The Model Bakery has always been a great stop in the morning with their fresh pastries and breakfast sandwiches on their famous English muffin. Now there is even more reason to stop by Napa's hometown bakery...Stumptown cold-brewed coffee...on tap! Stumptown starts with the highest quality coffee, cold brewed without heat for over 12 hours with a double filtration process to procure the end result: a complex, smooth and full-bodied brew with low-acid and a chocolate finish. Stop by The Model Bakery and grab a cup and start your mornings right!
MEAT PIE SPECIAL Five Dot meat pie
With school back in session, the summer heat slowly dropping, and the foggy mornings reminding us that fall is just around the corner, Five Dot Ranch cannot help but be excited for the new season, which means a new menu! It's still in the works, but Five Dot Ranch Cookhouse is previewing its meat pie special this week only. What better way to welcome the new season than indulging in a warm and flaky smoked ribeye cap meat pie with cilantro-cabbage salad and avocado salsa verde? 
Celebrate the bounty of the sea and land with a subtly spicy, aromatic bowl of tender, sweet Manila clams served with earthy lamb Merguez, Hog Island garden greens, harissa and preserved Meyer lemon at Hog Island Oyster Bar. Satisfying, yet surprisingly light, it's perfect as an end-of-summer dinner or late afternoon lunch, and pairs beautifully with a cold, crisp glass (or two) of dry rosé. Bon Appetit!
ENCHILADA PLATE SPECIAL    September enchilada special
If the thought of cooking dinner every night during the week sounds exhausting, than C CASA has just the plate for you! How does a warm tortilla wrapped around a delicious filling of shrimp, green onions, four cheeses, avocado tomatillo salsa, and topped with corn relish and avocado serrano crema sound? But wait, there is more, it is served with a mixed field green salad and a Mexican chocolate brownie bite, all for just $13. 
CHOCOLATE BARS Anette's Chocolate Bars
Bars, bars, and more bars! That's chocolate bars, of course! Thinly sliced apples and milk chocolate, roasted pistachios with 60 percent dark chocolate, sea salt or blood oranges and dark chocolate, plus many more. Stop by Anette's Chocolates and check out the tasty assortment of chocolate bars.
