About the Organization

Oxford Community Market

Oxford Community Market is a weekly farmers market with a mission to make healthy, local food more accessible to all people in our community, especially those facing barriers of cost and transportation.

The purpose of the Oxford Community Market includes, but is not limited to, addressing food insecurity in Oxford, Mississippi. Its goal is to increase access to fresh food for local and regional community members. The Community Market connects growers and producers with customers, delivering affordable, regionally grown and nutritious foodstuffs. 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.
