We have a feast of stalls at the market this week. Alongside our market staples, we welcome back Coopers Pork and Cotswold Curer. LAM Brewing are also back with their usual selection of local craft beers and it’s a cheese week with Crudges Cheese selling their award-winning local cheeses. Tiddley Pommes are back selling local apple juice, and Oxford Poetry Library will be at the market for the first time with a selection of publications from local writers – all displayed on a custom-made bike. Once again, we have takeaway food from around the world and our market café where you can take a break from shopping to sample home-cooked food.
