The Gloucester Green Market

The Gloucester Green Market is a historic outdoor market in the heart of Oxford. It has been a fixture of the city since the 18th century and is one of the region’s largest and most diverse markets. Gloucester Green Market is open from Wednesday to Sunday and offers various goods, including fresh produce, flowers, clothing, jewellery, antiques, books, and more.

Visiting The Gloucester Green Market

If you’re in Oxford, you should definitely stop by this wonderful market.

The Gloucester Green market has a lot of excellent food stalls with very reasonable prices (I’m taking about twenty choices with international cuisine!). The market also has a great atmosphere, something that makes it an ideal stop for a quick snack or meal, and plenty of seating space. 

As someone who has lived in Oxford for a while, I just cannot get enough of this market. I feel that every time I go, there’s a new food option to try – and all of them, so far, have been fantastic.

Where is the Gloucester Green Market?

The Gloucester Green Market is a popular destination for both tourists and locals and is known for its vibrant atmosphere and unique shopping experience. Here’s how to get to it:

If you are travelling by car, there are several public car parks in Oxford city centre, the closest being the Worcester Street car park. However, as parking can be limited and expensive, it may be easier to use public transport.

Oxford train station is about a 10-minute walk from the market, or you can take a local bus or taxi to get closer. The Oxford Bus Company and Stagecoach both operate in the city, and several bus stops are within a short walk of the market.

The market is also easily accessible by foot or bicycle, especially if you are already in the city centre.
