Ready to elevate your favorite cocktail, mocktail, and coffee creation at home? Block Ice artisan ice cubes are now available for retail purchase at Napa’s Food City Market. 

Napa’s Food City Market Now Carrying Block Ice

Napa’s Historic Food City building was built in 1942 as Napa’s first “drive-in” shopping center. The landmark has undergone a revamp and exterior restoration, returning to its Art Deco and Art Moderne-style roots with new life as a food hall and market. 

Food City’s Instagrammable vibe and in-demand eateries, such as La Hacienda Taqueria Bar and Grill, Rutherford Family Pizza, and Naysayer Coffee, are attracting locals and tourists alike.

The Food City Market debuted in August 2023, adding a small specialty grocery market to the food-centric shopping center. Food City Market stocks a mix of grocery and household items, prepared foods, and local specialty items. Owner Jimmy Magnat called it “Whole Foods, but smaller.” 

Among the specialty, local items stocked at Food City Market is our artisan-crafted, hand-cut Block Ice, perfect for elevating at-home cocktails.

Stock Your Home Bar with Artisan Ice: Where to Find Block Ice

Home cocktail enthusiasts who’ve experienced Block Ice inside their glasses at local Napa bars and restaurants can now stock their home bars with the same high-quality clear ice used at Archer Whiskey Bar, Farm at Carneros Resort, CHISPA, and others. 

Find us at these Napa-area bars, restaurants, and hotels.

Food City Market in Napa is now our second retail partner. You can also find Block Ice at Sacramento-area Nugget Markets.

Bars and restaurants use our artisan hand-cut ice to elevate the cocktail experience. If you’re a cocktail connoisseur, you already know that standard freezer ice can come out cloudy and contain odors or flavors that can negatively affect your home cocktails. Our artisan ice cubes are created from 7x-filtered water and slow-frozen over 4 days in a specialty freezer, resulting in crystal clear, unadulterated, and uncloudy cubes. 

We then hand-cut our oversized cubes to fit perfectly into your cocktail glass.

Whether you’re hosting a party at home or simply want to elevate your cocktails, mocktails, and iced coffee drinks, Block Ice makes every beverage a moment of luxury.

Stock up your home bar cart with Block Ice from Napa’s Food City Market or Sacramento-area Nugget Markets.

Hosting an event? We can provide enough ice for every drink, customizing the blocks with stamps, or infusing them for an unforgettable experience. Place a bulk order here.
