A New experience of a Market

Our family of four all enjoyed our visit to the Oxford Covered Market! It was a rainy day when we went, so it was great to be out of the weather but still enjoy the market like atmosphere. So many fascinating shops! I loved the variety of boutique clothing and shoe shops, and my children enjoyed the food - especially... More

The Covered Market is worth a trip through for a morning/midday coffee. There are plenty of coffee and pastry shops that also sell baguettes and salad. There are also leather goods, cashmere/wool/etc garments, butcher, baker, fresh produce.

Great place to look for trinkets, meet friends and/or grab a quick bite. Interesting shops to wander through. Centrally located it's a good break from walking tours or other Oxford sightseeing.

Always enjoy paying a visit to the market, usually go every week, but just before Christmas it was a joy to see. Bordering on the Victorian, with hare and turkey, venison and beef and all hung in front of and over the butcher shops. Not forgetting the marvellous fish and fruit, nut and cheese stalls. Magic, sheer magic.

Interesting old style market with a wide range of shops ranging from food & veg to leather goods. Plenty of old time charms.

Easy to find not far from The High St. No problem to get round, no crowds even on a Saturday. Small useful shops and an old fashioned café, beats the usual big names it actually has character and pleasant customer service with reasonable prices.

So where can you find an old fashioned butchers with turkeys and chickens hanging up next to rows of sausages, pie and mash shop, Rolex watches, cafes, beer vendors and cheese shops and clothing stores? It's all here for you.....

We really enjoyed browsing the unique stalls - lots of lovely things to see and buy. A warning about the dead animal caucuses outside the butcher which are not very pleasant. Other than that, I highly recommend a visit.
