Every Friday evening from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend, the City of Napa closes First Street to traffic and the Napa Chef’s Market rolls into action. First Street becomes a pedestrian zone lined with tables and chairs, colorful fruit, flower and vegetable stands, and a series of bandstands for local musicians. Locals and tourists alike, turn out to enjoy the warm summer evenings and taste the "fruits of the Napa Valley."
Local restaurants and food vendors have set up temporary kitchens to prepare and serve treats for every taste. Mexican food, Moroccan food, Italian, Chinese, BBQ, Cajun, hot dogs, -- "You name it, It’s there." Plenty of tables are provided so you can sit and enjoy, while watching the world go by.
The Firday Chef’s Market provides something for everyone!
The Kids are kept busy with pony rides, fire engines to play on and rubber jump centers set up Just-for-them!
Teens enjoy looking at the hot-rods on display, listening to the music on 3 bandstands, checking out the craft vendors and just "hangin’ out with friends.
The Adults, of course, like to imbibe in the "other-fruits" of the Napa Valley. Several wine vendors offer tastings of their recent vintages. In the Town Center Rotunda, guest Chefs from several of the Valley’s world class restaurants provide cooking displays and demonstrations--complete with tastes!
The Market- is open every Friday from 4pm - 9pm Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend. Free parking is available in the local lots.
