Wolvercote Farmers' Market has gone from strength to strength, and is back to being a true farmers' market, in that veg is local and organic in the main - alternately week by week provided by ...

I've always had a soft spot for North Parade - bizarrely south of South Parade: endearingly narrow and almost always covered with flowers. In fact as a street, it's so narrow that I've often felt it ...

There are two crucial pieces of preparation for a visit to Oxford's Farmers' Market: get a bank loan and hire a porter. For you will inevitably buy a great deal more than you intended. Your ...

To this I just want to add that in particular the bread stalls make your trip there worthwhile. As I don't find much variety in Oxford's bread supply (apart from a few, totally overpriced ...

Miranda - Fresh local produce (mostly organic), crafts and eco-friendly groceries.
In winter, sticking to local veg can be a bit of a bind - what do you make with three pounds of curly kale and one kholrabi? - but I can vouch for the great value of the East Oxford Farmer's ...
Kat Luddecke - Fresh local produce (mostly organic), crafts and eco-friendly groceries.

Reviews

It's a shame this small but well-formed farmers' market only happens on the fourth Friday of the month - I'm sure many of its customers could happily use it weekly. [Now happens every Saturday, so ...

Oxford Castle Farmers Market

Local farmers' market (2nd & 4th Thursday of every month)

October 15, 2013

what we bought at the market

It's surprisingly easy to find fresh local produce in Oxford. We receive the benefit of around 10 farmers' markets as well as a regular car boot sale (Kassam stadium, every Sunday) and a travelling bi-weekly VegVan with local organic goodies.

If you want to get down and dirty with the veg (and who doesn't), you can go to one of Oxfordshire's Pick Your Own farms - there are also a fair number of farm shops in the environs. Medley Manor farm, a pleasant walk from the Botley Road or across Port Meadow from Jericho, is the closest to the centre.

All the markets below are covered in our Oxford map.
