Every month hundreds of people are drawn to the same venue – an old industrial warehouse at 92 Burton Road in Neepsend – to enjoy street food, craft ales, cocktails and more.

The Government-imposed lockdown, and the prospect of social distancing measures for months to come, means a question mark hangs over when the next market can take place.

But now the organisers have found a way for the event to return in a different form – ‘Peddler To Your Door'.

Street food can be ordered via Deliveroo and CityGrab for delivery on Friday and Saturday between 5pm and 10pm. Pre-orders will at open at 3pm on Friday.

People living within two miles of 92 Burton Road should use Deliveroo, which will cost £2.49. Those living in other Sheffield postcodes should use CityGrab; the delivery charge will add up to a normal taxi fare.

Pre-orders for drinks, meanwhile, are available on the Peddler website for delivery between 12pm and 6pm, to most Sheffield postcodes.

Freedom ale and lager, Hogan’s Cider and Red Willow Weightless IPA are available priced £5 for two pints, while there are two cocktail deals available – an Aperol Spritz package priced £50, comprising bottles of Aperol Spritz and Cava, and a case of Fever-Tree soda, as well as the £65 ‘supersonic gin and tonic package’, which includes a bottle of Bulldog Gin, a bottle Briottet Creme de Cassis, and a case of Fever-Tree Aromatic tonic water.
