I love upscale public markets and this is one! Shop, eat, drink. It's all there. Great choices and fab people watching. Indoor and outdoor seating.

A public market in the heart of the city has a lot to offer. We wandered in one of those nights you are not sure what you want. They have such variety! They have a cheese shop and wine bar, a seafood restaurant, a bakery a Mexican restaurant among others. We chose a meat market where you choose and they... More

Small market with many shops inside, ranging from coffee, to oysters to pizza. I'd definitely recommend the pizza place and the beer. Combine the two and you are bound to leave this place happy :-)

Inside the Oxbow are many food stalls. Everyone can have something different and gather together to sit. Inside or out. We went to try the new brewery and my husband wanted a burger. Should have gone to Gotts. The burger was good but not great for $17 with tax and tip. It came with a "few" chips and a pickle.... More

This is a small market with several high-end specialty shops. It's worth the trip to take a jaunt through the market. There are a few places to grab a bite to eat, but really, there is not a lot here. The entire market can be walked in less than an hour, or a little over an hour if you stop... More

If you like local fresh ingredients to either take home and cook, or eat there, then you will love this place. Lots of little stalls selling all sorts of produce. Fruits, veg, oysters, cheese, pizza, cakes etc. Lots of choice and all extremely delicious.

We were there around the evening dinner time. Lots of people, though not overly crowded. Prices are reasonable. Selection impeccable and amazing. There are lots of food vendors, some sit down and some walk-up. And then...there are....all things food: spices, cheese, herbs (fresh and dried), chocolate, produce, the list goes on, the catch...yes, there is also fish and seafood. All... More

This market was great. There is so much to explore in what looks like a small market. We went twice, because we had so much fun the first time. We had oysters at Hog Island and they were delicious. We bought oil and vinegar and spices from the shops inside. We are so glad we took the time to visit... More

I have mixed emotions about Oxbow Public Market as it can get a bit crowded and I am not overly fond of crowded places. Having said that, the set up is similar to what you might encounter in Barcelona, Spain. A shopping plaza with numerous little places to grab a bite to eat or enjoy a glass of wine, all... More
