Talking Shop’s Market & Cafe
We sell delicious local produce and run a great cafe every Saturday morning from 9am to midday in the Village Hall, Sandford-on-Thames.
The Saturday Market & Cafe was started as a fundraiser and as an opportunity to investigate the market, to work with and to build up a team of volunteers and to learn about running a shop of sorts.
The Market is run completely by volunteers – we have a pool of about 60 people involved and about 15 work on any Saturday morning to run the market.
The Weekly Staples -produce that you can get every week
- Fantastic fruit & veg, grown without chemicals, from Ashtrees Farm in Benson
- Great local pork from Jane and Mark Cooper
- Fresh bread and pastries from Cornfields family bakery, Wheatley
- Local jams, honey, sauces and apple juice
- Great English cheeses
- Yoghurt from Woodlands Dairy in the Cotswolds
- Butter from Netherend Farm
We have space for several additional guest pitches. We charge a £10 pitch fee, you keep your takings. We’re always excited to invite new people to join us. If you are an independent local producer, professional or not, and you are interested in selling through the market please do get in touch – email on email@example.com or call on 01865 774661.
The East Oxford Farmers’ & Community Market is a small, friendly local market which can provide the staples for your weekly shop, all from sources within 30 miles of Oxford: bread, eggs, milk, vegetables, cheese, various meats, refills for cleaning supplies – as well as a range of other products such as jewellery, clothing and secondhand books.
It has been running since August 2006, and is a non-profit making organisation, run by a committee and a group of volunteers.
We are passionate about the market and what it sells. We actively source food from within 30 miles of Oxford and encourage community stalls run by local residents. We also offer Fairtrade produce from further afield and try to make sure it comes to us by land or ship. Further details are available in our Market Manifesto.
The market has a cafe which runs each week selling delicious breakfasts, lunches, cakes and fair-trade teas and coffee. This is a lovely place to meet up and take a break from shopping.
Become a fan of the market on Facebook – see our East Oxford Farmers’ Market Facebook page.

Even more important, if you have any produce to sell, you can do so at the market provided you collect the money and any unsold items promptly at 1pm, and donate 10% of the takings to St Nicolas Church funds. To join the happy band of producers, email Gilly Osborne firstname.lastname@example.org.
