Centred in the middle of the City, accessed either from the High Street, Market Street or through the Golden Cross in Cornmarket Street the Covered Market welcomes its visitors with an array of colours and aroma’s. The building dates back to the 1770’s and has a long, varied and interesting heritage.
The Market has always been an attraction for visiting tourists, providing 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. With over 40 traders selling food, gifts, shoes, fashion, flowers and jewellery to name but a few it is the unique ‘one stop shop’. No one coming to Oxford should miss a visit and with the continued support from local residents, students and businesses it will continue to thrive – so visit us soon and enjoy the personal bespoke customer service together with first class products.
The Covered Market is open to the public from 8 am – 5.30 pm Monday to Saturday and 10 am – 4 pm on Sundays. However, all the businesses have their own opening times and some do not open on Sundays so please check ‘Our shops’ where you will be able to access individual businesses websites and telephone numbers.
