Overview

Oxford Covered Market is the jewel in the crown of Oxford. The market features more than 50 traders selling food, gifts, shoes, fashion, flowers and jewellery, and provides a unique showcase for the very best in local crafts, food and drink. We are proud that the majority of our businesses are independent and with some going back generations. The building, which is located in the very heart of Oxford, dates back to the 1770’s and has a long, varied and interesting heritage.

Very beautiful market indeed , after visiting you realise how ugly the other markets are. The main beauty is in the roof and matching shop fonts.

I love all the handmade, Indian, cake, shoe, framing shops and cafés. Small and very cozy little market with kind people in all the shops. Very variegated, so different than other markets. Just love it.

Previous visits to this market, when in Oxfords have been enjoyable, The premises looked very tired and disheveled, and we could get out quickly enough. Shame as this used to be a place of charm. Need a big spruce up

Lots of lovely little shops to visit that sell things you won’t find on the high street. Great for gift buying! Also many places to chose from in terms of food, from Thai to ice cream to fresh fruit and cheese. Definitely worth a visit

If you are in downtown Oxford, you need to stop at the Covered Market. So many fun shops and restaurants, you can easily spend a couple of hours wandering around. Most everything in the market closes in the afternoon so I recommend heading there in...More

Many shops disappeared during the past few years but we still improve the sense of feeling three centuries ago in this unique and living site. Some shops are unmissable : the cakes shop with wonderful creations for all events; the groceries and the butchers of...More
