A little oasis of shopping in the big business desert of the City - fairly easy to miss if you don't know about it. A reasonable range of shops ( mostly clothing, a card shop, a Timpsons,and a mid-sized Waterstones), restaurants/wine bars/brasseries, a couple of hairdressers,, and Oddbins, etc. A visually pleasing example of Victorian gothic - lots of cast iron pillars and enameling. At lunch times during the week, there are the addition of a number of food stalls , including a Greek one and a vegeatarian/falafel stand. Has a fairly regular procession of "events", cultural or food related. Also a venue for the Oxjam festival - 22nd October 2010 - billed as "12 hours of local music, food, and fun". Apparently the entire market can be hired out for private events.

A grand location for planning your next big deal; that's what everyone around you is doing in any case. You'd best be suited and booted if you don't want to stick out like a sore thumb, and it's not the place for a cheap coffee. All that said, if you are correctly camoflaged, and wish to soak up some of the hubris, this is a pretty good spot to people watch. Staff are friendly and efficient too.
