Oxford Covered Market revisited

Oxford Covered Market established in 1774.

A committee was formed in 1772, when it was decided to build a covered market to rid the town centre of untidy market stalls. Half the money was provided by the town half by the university.

Explored more than my previous visit to Oxford Covered Market when I walked through but still only small part of this amazing market.

Three stalls worth visiting, a craft beer stall, Colombia Coffee Roaster and a cheese stall.

I was reminded of the Spice Market of Istanbul, without the pungent smell of spices.

This is how markets should be, a veritable Aladdin’s Cave of wonders. It puts to shame the Central Market in Lincoln.
