The East Oxford Farmers' and Community Market is a Community Benefit Society, which is a type of 'Registered Society' (a co-op would be the other type), registered with the Financial Conduct Authority. This kind of society exists in order to carry on business for the benefit of the community, whether that community are members or not, and not for anyone's private benefit. Profits go towards this aim.

The rules of the society can be found here.

Anyone over the age of 16 can join our co-operative as long as they agree with our Market Manifesto and are either a "Resident" or have a significant involvement in the market, for example as a volunteer, stall holder or staff member ("Non-Resident" member). The residential area is defined as a 2km radius from OX4 1JP, but excluding those areas to the west of the River Cherwell and to the west of where the River Cherwell meets the River Thames.
