  • Market Street runs east-west in central Oxford, England. The street lies north of the Covered Market, a historic roofed market with permanent stalls that is still very much active today, and north of Lincoln College's Lincoln House accommodation complex. To the west is the major pedestrianised shopping street, Cornmarket Street, and to the east is Turl Street. On the north side of the street is Jesus College, one of Oxford University's historic colleges with its main entrance in the Turl. The Market Tavern (formerly the City Tavern, Bar Oz and the Roebuck public house) was once located on the south side of Market Street. The Oxford University Jazz Club (now the Oxford University Jazz Society) had met there for jazz performances and jam sessions. The Tavern has since been replaced by a noodle restaurant. The noodle restaurant being a place for musical groups to meet is unclear. To the east, over Turl Street, Market Street continues as Brasenose Lane, accessible to pedestrians only, and named after Brasenose College, located to the south at its far end. This lane, used as a cut through route by students and other locals, emerges into cobbled Radcliffe Square at its eastern end. To the north of Brasenose Lane is Exeter College and at the western end to the south is Lincoln College. In the 1960s Market Street was the place to park your scooter if you were a 'mod'. On most nights of the week you would find upwards of 30 scooters, usually Lambretta's and Vespas of all colours, displaying every mod accessory under the sun. They would be parked in a single line, 90 degree angle to the path, facing Marks and Spencer's store window.
