More business at the barn will be a boost for Penistone

Have your say

Penistone market barn will busier than ever from this month thanks to extra trading days provided by a private market operator.

A secondhand and collectables market will take place on Tuesdays, and also on two Sundays per month.

The market will be run by Keiron Knight, an existing Barnsley central market trader with extensive experience of both trading on markets and running businesses.

Keiron said: “I saw an opportunity to run a secondhand and collectables market in Penistone, making more use of this unique building, and hopefully bringing more trade into the town.

“Fingers crossed it will be successful for people selling unwanted items and for shoppers wanting to snap up a bargain.”

Craft and farmers’ market providers are also being approached about extra sessions.
