Continental market to set up in Sheffield city centre

Have your say

An award-winning continental market is set to bring an international flavour to Sheffield.

From Wednesday 30th April until Monday 5th May, traders from around the world will be offering goods for sale.

They will set up stalls on Fargate, Town Hall Square and in the Peace Gardens.

A Dutch flower market will operate at the same time, with an array of flowers, plants and bulbs set to be sold.

Councillor Leigh Bramall, Sheffield City Council’s Cabinet Member for Business, Skills and Development, said: “It is great to be welcoming the continental market back to Sheffield city centre.

“The tempting food smells from this market always waft into us here in the Town Hall and I for one find it hard to resist the goodies on offer when it is here. Not only is it a fun and different experience, tasting foods from around the world, but at the same time it boosts footfall into the city centre, which will no doubt benefit the businesses in the town centre.”

The market will trade from 9am to 5.30pm Wednesday to Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday and Monday.
