Due West Market: A Quintessential Highway 1 Roadside Attraction
In October 2019, the Due West Market launched as a crowd-pleasing companion to the already award-winning Due West Tavern and Olema House, which was recently named the “best hotel in the U.S.” by Condé Nast Traveler. Due West Market acts as a one-stop-shop for travelers looking for a java-based pick-me-up, a healthy (and delicious) lunch on the go, or a heartfelt keepsake. Whether you’re en route to the neighboring Point Reyes National Seashore or staying at Olema House, you’ll quickly discover Due West Market’s brilliance and convenience.
Due West Market’s Eats & Treats
First and foremost, Due West Market acts as a classic roadside cafe—one boasts a bevy of chef-crafted breakfast sandwiches, baked goods, and eye-popping espresso drinks with beans from San Rafael’s own Equator Coffees. Scrumptious baked delights include muffins, turnovers, cookies, bagels, biscotti, and banana bread. The skilled culinary staff also crafts sandwiches, breakfast burritos, salads, and even daily housemade chips. Thirsty patrons can order a steaming cup of joe or peruse the beverage wall, filled with local wine, canned wine coolers, sparkling water, and traditional sodas. You can even purchase a bottle of the “Olema House Wine,” a lovely red.
Keepsakes and Artisanal Goods
While Due West Market may be a one-room operation, there’s an incredibly eclectic mixture of branded products and artisanal goods from all across Marin County. An Olema House Wine pairs sublimely with several other Due West-branded goodies, such as towels, glassware, hats, water bottles, and, everyone’s favorite, the signature, extra-large beach tote bag. The Market also boasts products from Wanna Date?, Endangered Species Chocolates, Flowers Vineyard, Sugarfina, Riveria Towel Company, The Campout Cookbook, KRAVE, and Paqui Products. As you can imagine, Due West Market allures countless outdoor enthusiasts who plan to enjoy a picnic along the Point Reyes National Seashore.
On-Site Dining and Lodging
But, of course, we highly recommend combining a pit stop at Due West Market with a gourmet dinner and a stay at the top-rated hotel in California. Due West Tavern presents a seasonally-inspired menu, utilizing only local ingredients, such as fresh oysters from Tomales Bay, local vino (and craft beer), and organic produce from our favorite Bolinas area farms. This farm-to-fork experience inside this repurposed 1865 building is a culinary voyage worth revisiting time and time again. Meanwhile, Olema House provides a unique blend of urbane sophistication and parkland-esque allure. Small crowds often gather on the great lawn, which peers toward peaceful Olema Creek. Outdoor enthusiasts, honeymooners, and foodies alike will find a new level of comfort and serenity at this quintessential Olema hotel.
