The Community Market is an independent, non-profit organization that was established in 2012 by the City of Oxford.

"In 2016 we left the city and became an independent, non-profit organization, so we changed our name to Oxford Community Market," said betsy chapman, the market director. "The city invested in it and got it up and running."

The Community Market is fairly new when compared to the more established Mid-Town Farmers' Market, which was started in 2001.

All of the products are fresh and supplied by farms all over Lafayette County and the surrounding areas. During the early spring, there are as many as 20 vendors stationed at the market, and during the height of the summer there are around 40 vendors.

At the Market you can find practically anything that farms produce. Fresh eggs are a popular commodity at the market that usually sell out fairly quickly.

"Fresh eggs are always the first thing on the list," said Paige Osborn, a frequent market shopper. “It’s usually the first thing they sell out of.”

The Market runs for nine months out of the year, which is long compared to another farmers market in town, the Mid-Town Farmers' Market, which only runs from May to October.

“We have a pretty long market season,” said Chapman. “From April all the way up to the week before Christmas.”

The Market is open on Tuesdays from 3-6:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. during the market season.
