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.
