This spin-off of a Napa Valley original is located in Healdsburg’s bustling town square. Staffers line shelves with local specialty foods like olive oil, mustards, and marinades; pack a deli case with meats, cheeses, and prepared foods; and house a showcase oven that yields seasonal pizzas topped with toppings like garlic and basil or mushroom and pancetta. Oakville Grocery sells grape leaves by the dozen, a host of salads and sandwiches, entrees like marinated tri-tip or vegetable lasagna, and sides such as penne pesto and Mediterranean orzo. There's a low-walled patio for on-site eating, though many stop only to pick up picnic provisions.
Oakville Grocery is only two blocks from the Healdsburg Museum and Historical Society, which hosts exhibitions with themes like “Healdsburg’s Artistic Heritage” and “Ancestors of Mexico.”
