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.

This is neglected a bit, not many things here. Most of the things here, you can buy in any supermarket.

Explored the market and enjoyed a late lunch here, picking up some produce for snacks on our travels. While iconic, I was a little underwhelmed. Though I did get quite excited to later see it featured in an episode of Lewis when I was able...More

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!
