Regular readers will know that Matron just loves to visit produce markets around the world. So this week I took a trip just about an hour away to Oxford Covered Market
. This market has been here for hundreds of years.
First stop, before I loaded myself with shopping, was to climb up the Carfax Tower at the end of the high street. A rare moment of clear, blue sky over the 'dreaming spires' of Oxford.
A spectacular collection of market stalls!
Locally produced and named varieties. Here you can see these January King cabbages.
So, on to the Oxford Cheese Company
. How could I resist a gourmet selection of local and European cheese. I bought a very naughty chunk of ripe French Brie, infused with truffles.
Their speciality is the Oxford Blue cheese.
You want sausages! well here is the place. A place of worship for lovers of the good old fashioned banger! Just look at that Cumberland wheel!
Professionally butchered meat and game. Just another couple of weeks for wild pheasant and the season is over. I can most highly recommend a trip to Oxford.
