Overview

Oxford Covered Market is the jewel in the crown of Oxford. The market features more than 40 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.

The best place to shop if you want flowers, cheese cakes etc. A special mention to The Garden flower shop (and the very helpful David) who provided us with fabulous flowers for our daughter's graduation.

The place is nice and some of the buildings seem to be very old. Yet it is clean and does not smell bad, like other covered places often do. The shops are okay and the food smells really great.

There are interesting shops and an amazing array of food, so it's a great place to wander, rain or shine. We had the hardest time deciding what to eat, there were so many amazing food choices!

We visited here on a Sunday and there weren't many places open for business which including the ones that appeared to have been closed completely left the place seeming desolate! The only toilets we could fine were ladies toilets at the back of the market...More

We visited here as part of an amble through the centre of Oxford. Plenty of small shops ranging from jewellers and baby clothes shops, through to a very large butchers and an Oxford FC shop. An eclectic mix!
