Chef's Market: Food, Music & Fun in Downtown Napa

Have you ever experienced Napa's famous Chef's Market?

  • An amazing organic farmer's market,
  • Demonstrations from world-class chefs,
  • Lots of Napa Valley food, wine, and crafts,
  • Live music, and more!
Each Thursday (May 16 - August 1, 2013), Napa shuts down its main drag (First Street) to cars and has one giant street party from 5-9 pm.  All just a short 10-minute walk from the Old World Inn!

Admission is free and a great way to experience so many things Napa has to offer.

World-famous Napa Valley chefs conduct two cooking demonstrations each Thursday at 6:30 and 7:30 pm.  Stores and restaurants stay open later and have special deals.  Outdoor booths feature local Napa Valley artisans and craftspeople.

Take a leisurely walk through the Chef's Market, tasting your way through: just-picked organic fruit from local farmers, freshly-prepared hot nibbles from local Napa restaurants, and some amazing Napa Valley wine.  Some of Napa's world-famous food trucks roll in to tempt you with their incredible gourmet street food.  And dozens of local restaurants are within a block or two.  You'll find mouthwatering food everywhere.

To keep kids safe there is a separate family-friendly area off to the side, featuring hands-on crafts, a discovery center, face painting, and even some sweet treats.  Fresh kettle corn, anyone?  (free samples!)

Parking is free, but why drive?  It's a quick 10-minute walk from the Old World Inn.  After a hard day of wine tasting, relax and enjoy the warm summer breezes as you stroll through Napa's famous Chef's Market.

We'll see you soon!
