Say Goodbye Forever to Oakville Grocery in Healdsburg

Oakville Grocery, a popular local gourmet food market in the San Francisco Bay Area, is reportedly closing its Healdsburg, California location. The location will close on November 26th, after the Thanksgiving weekend.

The Healdsburg, California location, situated in the heart of the Sonoma Wine Country and near the popular Russian River region, was a popular stop for wine enthusiasts and visitors looking for a quick and tasty picnic to bring to Healdsburg’s nearby wineries.

Oakville Grocery was also a nice place to grab a more casual meal, when compared to some of the upscale (and pricey!) eateries in this lovely little Norcal town. The Healdsburg location was in business for over 25 years.

The location will reportedly be replaced by another local gourmet retailer with an established presence in Sonoma County.

Original Location to Remain Open

If you visit Napa a lot, don’t panic. The original location of Oakville Grocery–a beloved stop for many people driving up Highway 29 to Napa’s wineries–will remain open.

We’re sad to see the Healdsburg location close, but very happy that the Napa Valley location will still be serving up sandwiches and gourmet candies, hopefully for many years to come.
