The Oxford covered market in the historic city centre. It is more than a market with temporary stalls, here they are like real stores which are on covered streets. The market is north of the High Street and it has an entrance from Cornmarket too. It opened in 1774 and it remains a very dynamic city. While the food, fruit, vegetables, meat and fish stalls have all declined, and only represent half of the stores, more stores have been developed. There are gourmet products, gift shops, some bakeries, like this one which sells homemade cookies which is incredibly successful and has one of the longest lines in the market, even though the cookies cost about 3 euros each! There are some restaurants but space is limited, in general they serve things to take away and have a couple of tables beside the stall. Saturday is the busiest day, but as I said, most of these stores have glass walls as it is not a traditional open market. On Sunday the market is closed. It's one of the must-see places in the city.
