I’m gonna start off by saying it’s a good market but it’s nothing amazing. There’s a nice mix between food places, fruit and veg stalls, flower shops and butchers. It’s perfect that’s indoors so you can be shielded from the rain. It’s equally amazing because...More

We enjoyed a blustery trip to Oxford today enjoying the spired city and numerous colleges too. We found a haven inside the famous covered market established since the 1770’s . Bustling with stalls and traders lots of delicious foods and crafts for everyone too.

We visited on a wet Sunday in early March and were hugely disappointed to find most of the shops and stalls closed. We also felt the title market a bit misleading as it seemed more a collection of permanent shops.

This place is a hidden gem well worth spending some time wandering around. A fantastic mix of little shops and cafes. Jewellers, Florists, Cake Decorators, Clothes, it has it all.

The Oxford Covered Market is a great place to kill a few hours visiting interesting local shops that are not big chains. Some of the most interesting shops sell fresh meat and produce which sadly if you don't have access to a kitchen for cooking...More

This is a great little market to potter around and do some window shopping, or indeed some real shopping, and there is tons to choose from; food, clothes, household, cakes, pies, crap, toys. Loved the place, think it's worth visiting just for a look about,...More
