About the Organization

Oxford Community Market

The Community Market promotes better health, social awareness, and public dialogues that drive a sustainable economic system for vendors, customers, the market, and the communities we serve.

OXCM's Programming includes:

Oh, SNAP! - An incentive program that provides a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $10, to customers using SNAP benefits at the market to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables.
