Oxford Covered Market survey
- and children's quiz!
16 March 2021
We are working with the City’s Regeneration Manager and other parties to put together a proposal to revitalise Oxford’s historic Covered Market. A fully worked-up scheme will be submitted to the Council towards the end of 2021 for approval and the necessary funding.
We want to consult our members and members of the public to get a wide range of views on the form and function of the Market. We have set up a survey to collect people’s views. The survey is here; please take 5 – 7 minutes to answer the survey so we can gather views and include them in our response. When doing so please think back to the time before COVID-19 when there was freedom to move around without restriction.
The closing date for responding to the survey is 5pm on 8 April 2021.
Thank you for taking part.
Kids’ Market Quiz!
Even under the current lockdown the Covered Market’s food and other essential stalls are open for business, and all stalls should be able to open on 12 April. So you can visit any time to look around (though many of the food stalls close at 3pm at the moment). It’s a great place to take the young ones in your life, especially on a wet day, and there’s plenty for them to see. Take our “I Spy” quiz with you and see how many of the things they can spot. When you’ve finished or had enough head for the Oxford Cheese Company – the cheese shop at the back of the market (the Market Street side, the side away from the High Street) – and claim a sticker as a reward! You can tweet us too on @oxcivicsoc to let us know how your young people got on with the quiz.
Visit the Covered Market’s website for up to date information about opening times. At the time of writing these were Monday – Saturday 8am – 5.30pm; Sunday – Closed. The 5.30 closing time may vary; the market will close each day after the last trader has closed. Note too that the Oxford Cheese Company shop is usually closed on Mondays so you won’t be able to get a sticker!
