Directions to get to OxGrow (15 minutes by foot, 6.25 minutes by bike):
  1. From the middle of town at Carfax Tower (at Cornmarket and High Streets), go south on the Abingdon Road and turn right into White House Road. (White House Rd is the second right after the bridge.)
  2. Go down the road ~200 metres to the bend where you'll see Grandpont Nursery. Take the tree-covered path straight in front of you past SOAP (the South Oxford Adventure Playground).
  3. Cross the railway bridge, turn right and you’ve found us!
  4. And here's a more detailed Google Map: http://tinyurl.com/FindingOxGrow

Discover your local Farmers' Market!
Every Sunday, 9:30-12noon

The DailyInfo website has a very useful page which lists all the farmers' markets in Oxford. The one closest to Hogacre is the South Oxford Farmers' and Community Market so you can easily pop in there ahead or after coming down to Oxgrow. But don't forget to explore farmers markets in other corners of Oxford - it's a nice excuse to visit parts of town you rarely go to, and an easy way to stock up on local produce! Click here for a complete list.

SESI is Oxford's longest serving refill station of food products and household detergents - super sustainable, local enterprise! Well over 250 refills and food/household products are available to order through this website: http://www.sesi.org.uk/.
