Broken Spoke Open Bike Workshop @ Oxford
Oct 12 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

However big or small your bike-related issues are, get yourself down to our open workshop. We’ve got a fully stocked community tool chest (so you don’t have to spend a fortune on a tool you’ll use twice), lots of lovely bike stands and friendly mechanics to give you a hand!

We keep a stock of all the parts that wear out regularly and we also sell secondhand parts, so if you’re looking for a deal (or something slightly rare), we might have just the thing!

Local produce market @ St. Nicolas Church, Abingdon
Oct 12 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

The St Nic’s local produce and craft market is back! Every Friday morning between 11am and 1pm there will be stall in the little garden at the top of Stert Street (in the church if wet) selling fresh veg, local eggs, home-baked cakes and preserves, plants, seedlings and flowers.

Go early to get the best selection!

Even more important, if you have any produce to sell, you can do so at the market provided you collect the money and any unsold items promptly at 1pm, and donate 10% of the takings to St Nicolas Church funds. To join the happy band of producers, email Gilly Osborne ongho@dial.appleinter.net.

We are very happy to support this well-established venture bringing excellent, incredibly fresh local food right into the centre of town. Please help make it a success!

Talking Shop’s Market & Cafe

We sell delicious local produce and run a great cafe every Saturday morning from 9am to midday in the Village Hall, Sandford-on-Thames.

The Saturday Market & Cafe was started as a fundraiser and as an opportunity to investigate the market, to work with and to build up a team of volunteers and to learn about running a shop of sorts.

The Market is run completely by volunteers – we have a pool of about 60 people involved and about 15 work on any Saturday morning to run the market.

East Oxford Farmers’ & Community Market @ East Oxford Primary School, Oxford
Oct 13 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

The 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. Further details are available in our Market Manifesto.

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.

Become a fan of the market on Facebook – see our East Oxford Farmers’ Market Facebook page.
