Discounted rents are being offered to new traders on Barnsley’s semi open market.

New traders are being sought for the market in the run-up to Christmas to trial new goods not currently on sale at the site.

The council’s markets team is particularly interested in traders offering herbs and spices, electrical supplies or Motability goods.

Traders will be offered discounted rent for the first month of trading – £5 per unit per day instead of the usual charge of £12.

Coun Roy Miller, cabinet spokesman for Place, said: “The market and semi open market have always been at the heart of Barnsley and people come from miles around to shop there.”
