The range of stalls will offer gorgeous jewellery, artwork and prints, homeware, natural skincare, candles, food, accessories, flowers and unique gifts for Mothering Sunday.
As well as loads of indie stalls, House of Fun, who run activity camps for kids in Oxford, will be on hand with their free activity craft corner, to help children from ages 3 and up to make Mother’s Day paper bouquets.
Hosts Tap Social Movement will be keeping the beer and Proof Bakehouse pastries and pizzas flowing, plus there will be live music from the Botley Jazz Quintet.

I’m really excited to take part in the Spring Market as it’s such a fun atmosphere at the Tap Room, and it’s great to meet other indie makers and chat to customers. The Christmas Market was the first time I’d be involved with Independed Oxford and they do such a great job of putting everything together. I love that people can have a mooch around with a coffee or a beer, meet the makers and support local businesses. – Sarah Hoyle
