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.

Making food shopping a much more personal experience!
Come this sunday and meet our vendors!
We meet every Sunday afternoon to garden together, share a cup of tea and cake, learn about growing and take home fresh fruit and veg.
In the darker months of the year (Nov-Apr) we meet from 12-4pm on Sundays and when the days are longer (May-Oct) we meet from 1-5pm on Sundays and from 5-8pm on Wednesdays.
Our garden is free to access and we welcome people of all levels of experience to share the space in an inclusive and supportive environment.
We now have weekly gardening, building and growing days to begin creating a vegetable garden which will be open to community groups and individuals who are keen to be outdoors, live closer to nature, learn and share skills and make new friends. Tea and homemade soup will be provided!
Join us as we work together to turn a patch of field into an ABUNDANT GARDEN for many to enjoy! We’re in early days of the project and we welcome input, interest and ideas because there are tons of exciting things that could happen here . . .
We welcome people from all backgrounds and all ages. Whatever your experience, there’ll be something for you to enjoy!
Team Beryl invites women and trans folk into the workshop on the first Thursday of every month from 6-9pm.
Beryl’s Night is an evening just for women and trans folk, so if this includes you, please join us to take part in a mini-class on our monthly theme, work on your own bike in a safe space, and enjoy plenty of tea and biscuits and good company. Whether you’re interested in knowing more about maintaining your sweet ride, or just want to generally hang out with a great gang in a safe space, we hope to see you there!
Collaborate events are opportunities for Community Action Groups (CAGs) working on similar projects or across a common theme to meet up, share and find ways of working together.
The meetings are open to members of the CAG network, as well as other associated, like-minded groups and organisations. We also moderate theme mailing lists for CAGs to communicate with each other between meetings.
As a large network spread across the county, the meetings are an important chance for CAGs to:
- Discover more about other groups’ activities and achievements
- Share knowledge and skills
- Explore opportunities for collaborative projects and funding bids
- Gain advice and support from The CAG Project staff and other members
- Network and socialise with other members
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 email@example.com.
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!
