The Covered Market – The Covered Market in central Oxford may well be free to enter, however, we can’t guarantee how much you will spend at the wealth of shops and stores available inside. From fresh fruit and vegetables to clothes and jewellery and a range of cafes, the Covered Market has everything you could need for an afternoon of retail therapy.
