Local Excellence Market
This is a quarterly market where local food producers, craftworkers and retailers sell their goods in Abingdon Market Place. The Local Excellence Market gives Abingdon shoppers the chance to sample foods, beers and crafts from Oxfordshire and the nearest counties.
The market starts at 9am and packs up at 3pm (2pm in winter). Held on a Saturday, it is very popular with people who are at work all week and miss out on our weekly markets and is the largest market held in Abingdon-on-Thames.

The Abingdon on Thames Chamber of Commerce have a number of gazebos, with weights, available to hire. These are available to everyone, with a discount for charities and community groups. Many independent “one man” businesses have used these at our markets, as it is an easy, affordable hire, rather than an expensive purchase. Other hirers this year have included the Abingdon Food Festival, Heritage Weekend and many local charities with stands on the Market Place. For more information please email email@example.com
