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
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.

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, collecting stall rental and other small tasks. There are two shifts, 9:30am-11:00am and 12:00am-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 firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
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.
