Oxford’s Covered Market - steeped in 250 years of British tradition - has had a history of Royal celebrations including a recent visit from HRH Prince Charles. The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is no excep

Come and see the market embrace the platinum jubilee as it explodes in red, white and blue, with all kinds of shops, sights and smells to discover. The market is a very family-friendly place to visit and we have an extra treat for the little ones in your life during the Jubilee weekend. From May 23, it’s time to play Spot the Corgi! The more Corgis spotted, the more mini prizes can be won. It’s totally free and all guesses will be entered into an overall prize draw to win a bumper selection of market goodies.

The market is also hosting its first ever inter-trader Jubilee window competition. The winning trader prize is a special treat kindly donated by the Randolph Hotel. So come in and judge for yourselves which shop you think should win.

As well as market-wide fun, keep an eye out for special trader promotions too. Come drink a toast to the Queen’s milestone, or treat yourself to the freshest produce you’ll have ever tasted, from seafood to freshly baked cakes, pizza and a host of sweet and savoury treats delivered fresh to your table while in the market. Stock up on delicious foods for the weekend or have a treat yourself to a new outfit, some fresh flowers or simply a good cup of tea with a friend to help your special bank holiday weekend become the best ever. You know the Queen would approve!
