East Oxford Farmers' & Community Market
The East Oxford Farmers' & Community Market is a small, friendly local market which can provide the staples for your weekly shop, all from sources within 30 miles of Oxford: bread, eggs, milk, vegetables, cheese, various meats, refills for cleaning supplies - as well as a range of other products such as jewellery, clothing and secondhand books.
It has been running since August 2006, and is a non-profit making organisation, run by a committee and a group of volunteers.
We are passionate about the market and what it sells. We actively source food from within 30 miles of Oxford and encourage community stalls run by local residents. We also offer Fairtrade produce from further afield and try to make sure it comes to us by land or ship. Further details are available in our Market Manifesto.
The market has a cafe which runs each week selling delicious breakfasts, lunches, cakes and fair-trade teas and coffee. This is a lovely place to meet up and take a break from shopping.

Head down Cowley Road until you reach Tesco, and we are at the East Oxford Primary School directly behind the car park.
We are always looking for people to help with the market. There are a variety of jobs to do, including putting up and taking down the market's street signs, manning stalls and collecting stall rental. There are two shifts, 8:30am-11:30am and 11:30am-1:30pm. If you're interested in getting more involved either on a regular or occasional basis we'd love to hear from you - please contact us at the e-mail address below.
If you're interested in taking a stall at the market please drop us a line and we'll send you an information pack. For stall holders only there is free parking at the back of the school that can be reached from the Morrell Avenue end of Union Street.
