A Farmers’ Market is a venue for local people, making local food with local ingredients to sell their produce directly to you. All produce must be locally grown or locally produced – local means within 30 miles of the market location.9am – 2pm 1st Thursday of the month, 9am – 3pm 3rd Thursday of the monthThe East Oxford Farmers’ & Community Market is a small, friendly local market which can provide the staples for your weekly shop, all from sources within 30 miles of Oxford, bread, eggs, milk, vegetables, cheese, various meats, refills for cleaning supplies – as well as a range of other products such as jewellery, clothing and secondhand books. It has been running since August 2006, and is a non-profit making organisation, run by a committee and a group of volunteers. We are passionate about the market and what it sells. We actively source food from within 30 miles of Oxford and encourage community stalls run by local residents. We also offer Fairtrade produce from further afield and try to make sure it comes to us by land or ship. The market has a cafe which runs each week selling delicious breakfasts, lunches, cakes and fair-trade teas and coffee. This is a lovely place to meet up and take a break from shopping.
