Food lovers simply must stop by this co-op gourmet marketplace in downtown Napa. Both a place to eat and drink and a destination for buying local ingredients and edible gifts, this spacious, welcoming hall with centerpiece seating is one of my favorite places to dine, because everything here is so good. Grab an ultrafresh taco from C Casa (they also have insane gluten-free donuts at their gluten-free kiosk). Throw back oysters and bubbly at Hog Island Oyster Co. (on their shaded patio, if desired). Score some fresh spices at Whole Spice. Treat yourself to some of my favorite ice cream at organic Three Twins or a cupcake from Kara’s Cupcakes. Along with outstanding food, you’ll find some of the best prices in the valley.
