The Oxford Covered Market

The Covered Market
Oxford, Oxfordshire OX1 3DY United Kingdom

The Market was officially opened in 1774 and has a unique and wonderful atmosphere. It provides its visitors with the wonderful aromas of fresh fruit, coffee, and fresh baking and to a feast of sights and sounds.

In 1772 the original Market committee accepted an estimate for nine hundred and sixteen pounds and ten shillings for the building of twenty butchers’ shops. John Gwynn, the architect for Magdalen Bridge drew up the plans and designed the High Street frontage. Twenty more shops soon followed and from this, the market grew into the delight it is now. 

The Covered Market is home to numerous traders selling a captivating variety of goods. Fresh fruit, vegetables, bread and cakes, meats, cheeses, fine foods, flowers, leather goods, shoes, watches and jewellery, clothing, gifts, hats and so much more are on offer – the mix is electrifying.

When taking a break from browsing the goods there’s a mouth-watering choice of places to eat and drink to choose from. Whatever you are tempted with – a ciabatta, a cappuccino or a cake – you will always find something to satisfy in Oxford’s Covered Market.
