Oxford's Covered Market

We have been trading in the heart of Oxford for more than 200 years and have many stories to tell.  Our recent Heritage Lottery project has compiled some of these but we are sure that there are many others as yet untold.

Our market thrives on the expertise and experience of those people who choose to trade here, our suppliers and buyers, and those who come and spend their money here.  So, whether you are a visitor or a local resident, business or student, we extend you a warm welcome and look forward to making you a loyal customer.

The Covered Market Blog

In April 2013 Oxford City Council appointed an independent specialist market consultant – The Retail Group to work with the Covered Market traders and other stakeholders to define a future vision and strategy for the Covered Market.
The traders in Oxford's Covered Market would like to say a heartfelt thank you to every member of the public!

More about the market

Access to Oxford's Covered Market could not be easier.
Enter one of the main entrances from the High Street, under the blue canopies.  Wander through Golden Cross from Cornmarket, browsing in some of the great little shops on the way.  Or, come around the back for the real Market experience where you will see the hustle and bustle and the less commercial face of our operation - via Market Street (from Cornmarket or Turl Street).
