The centuries-old tradition of a Saturday market in Deddington, which ceased in 1830, was revived at the beginning of the new millennium - and it's thriving.
The market features once again in Rose Prince's The Good Produce Guide (2012) which lists over 1,000 places to buy the best food in the UK. She says this:
'This market in a delightful village spot is loved by its customers for the sheer range of produce on offer, including artisan bread, fresh vegetables and fuit, wet fish, meat, honey, locally made mustard and preserves and homemade soups. The market is held in the square, with some stalls inside the church. Villagers report that its arrival has been a great boost to the economy and has spawned other community events such as the annual village show.'
