About the South Oxford Farmers and Community Market

The South Oxford Farmers and Community Market is an initiative of the Low Carbon South Oxford (LCSO) Community Action Group. LCSO Sustainable Food Group supports the promotion of local food as a way of helping to combat climate change by reducing the amount of carbon released in the transport of food over long distances.

Our guiding principle is to run a weekly market selling ethically-produced local, seasonal and/or organic food and non-food goods. ‘Local’ means produced within a 30-mile radius of Oxford: ‘produced’ means containing a significant quantity of local ingredients and labour.

Locality rules do not necessarily apply to ethical enterprises such as Fairtrade or similar organisations; stalls selling environmentally-friendly household products; and local enterprises that add substantial community value to the market. In general, the Market Organisers reserves the right to interpret these guidelines and to afford space to traders on a case-by-case basis, in accordance with the overall principles of the market.

Stallholders’ production methods must have a minimal adverse environmental impact and conform to a good standard of sustainability, animal welfare and fairness at work. Stallholders should be able to give a good account of the provenance of all their ingredients from their source, and their production methods. Relevant certificates (e.g. Soil Association) should be displayed. The Market will monitor standards through discussion, inspection and questionnaires.

No genetically modified products or ingredients may be used or sold in any product.

All stalls will be staffed by at least one person directly involved in or fully knowledgeable about the growing/making of the produce/product who is able to answer customers’ questions about their products and their ingredients.

We support the resale of locally-sourced second-hand products such as books and clothing.

You’ll find dates for forthcoming market days here.
