Market on Main

3nd Annual

Saturdays, April - August 2023

9 AM - 1 PM

 

 In 2020, the Main Street Board and Promotion Committee rebranded the former Downtown after Sundown" and "Main Street Market" events to “Market on Main,” which is held weekly at Simmons Park on Saturday mornings throughout the Spring and Summer Seasons. It was only fitting that the event is held at Simmons Park since the space was used as a trading post for over 100+ years. Market on Main is a seasonal artisan and craft vendor market held at Simmons Park in Historic Downtown Oxford. Details for Market on Main 2023 are currently being planned.
