Happy Birthday, Delicious

They grow up so fast. It seems like just yesterday Napa's Oxbow Public Market was barely able to stand on its own, and look at it now, celebrating five years and looking more precious each day.

There are several cute things this market does so well. Like the restaurants with everything from $8 duck tacos to freshly shucked oysters, and even fancy, sit-down places. So cute! Oh, and there's the little Ritual coffee bar with perfect cappuccinos served in those dainty cups with the handle that's too small for a guy to fit his finger through. Adorable!

Oh my God, and have you seen that meat market? There's the one with the raw beef inside—so much marbling—but the one around the corner from the main space, the Fatted Calf . . . The salumi there is so good, even slicing it is an art that requires a special, hand-cranked machine.

The market celebrates its birthday with five days of fun, Jan. 21–25, including entertainment from high school music ensembles each day at 6pm. Friday, Jan. 25, seems to be the Kodak moment, with a book signing by Janet Fletcher (Eating Local: The Cookbook Inspired by America's Farmers) and free birthday cake from Model Bakery and ice cream from Three Twins from 5pm to 8pm. 610 First St., Napa. Free. 707.226.6529.
