Napa Valley Community Market at Napa Yard

 

This summer, Napa Valley introduces a vibrant new way to enjoy local culture and cuisine with the debut of the Napa Valley Community Market. Set in the scenic Napa Yard, the market kicks off on Thursday, June 13, from 5 to 8 p.m., and will continue every second and fourth Thursday through September. Unlike the traditional morning markets, the evening setting transforms the market into a lively community gathering, blending the ambiance of a festival with the practicality of a farmers' market.

 

A New Evening Ritual

Located in the Oxbow south parking lot, the Napa Valley Community Market is not just about shopping; it's an experience. As the sun sets, the market comes alive with music and the clinking of wine and beer glasses, offering a perfect backdrop for a relaxed summer evening. This event draws inspiration from the beloved markets of Sonoma Plaza and the historical Chef’s Market, creating an atmosphere that feels like a community party.

 

What to Expect

Visitors can expect a delightful mix of artisanal products, fresh local produce, gourmet foods, and unique arts and crafts. Enjoy exploring offerings from local artisans like handmade granola, organically grown vegetables, unique jams, and beautifully crafted artwork. The market also features vendors selling gourmet pizza and other delicious prepared foods, perfect for a picnic right there in the market.

 

More Than Just a Market

The Napa Valley Community Market is designed to be family and pet-friendly, making it an ideal spot for everyone to unwind and enjoy. After shopping, you can grab a glass of wine or dinner right at Napa Yard, making it the perfect evening out. Whether you're a local looking to enjoy a summer evening or a visitor wanting to experience Napa Valley like a local, the Community Market offers a unique blend of culinary delights and artisanal treasures.

 

A Community Hub for All

The Napa Valley Community Market not only offers a chance to shop and dine but also serves as a community hub where locals and visitors alike can connect. It’s a place where you can meet the faces behind the local produce and crafts, learn their stories, and discover the passion that drives them. Each market night is an opportunity to celebrate local culture, enjoy live entertainment, and immerse yourself in the vibrant community spirit of Napa Valley.

 

Sustainability and Support for Local Businesses

By attending the Napa Valley Community Market, you're doing more than just enjoying an evening out; you're also supporting local businesses and sustainable practices. Many of the vendors at the market are small, family-owned operations committed to eco-friendly methods and contributing to the local economy. Choosing to purchase from these vendors means supporting sustainable agriculture and artisanal craftsmanship within the community.

We can't wait to see you at the Napa Yard this Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m. for the opening night of the Napa Valley Community Market! Come join us for an evening filled with good food, great company, and the very best of Napa Valley’s local offerings.
