Festive fun and taste sensations can be experienced for longer at Sheffield’s Moor Market with extended Christmas opening hours.

The market will be opening from 8am to 5.30pm, Monday to Saturday, in the run-up to December 25, as well as on two Sundays to give shoppers even more chance to pop in and get the things they need.

Turkey, sprouts and festive ales will be on most people’s Christmas shopping lists this year.

With around 80 independent traders selling a huge range of meat, fish, vegetables, beverages and fresh produce, the Moor Market is the place to buy all the ingredients for the festive season.

Also on offer are great-value quirky and unique gifts and crafts, as well as a huge range of wrapping paper, cards and accessories.

On Sunday December 20, the Moor Market will open from 10.30am to 4.30pm – ideal for those last-minute gifts or for festive food supplies.

Younger customers, meanwhile, can enjoy a full programme of free Christmas activities.

On Saturday, December 5, there will be Christmas-themed storytelling.

As an extra chilly treat magical visitors from the North Mountain – in the form of “Frozen” characters Olaf and Anna – will come to the Moor Market between noon and 2pm on Saturday, December 12.

Face-painting sessions will run from 1pm to 3pm on Saturday, December 19 and, on Monday December 21, there will be balloon-modelling with Santa and his snowman at the same time. Olaf, Anna and Elsa will be back in the market between noon and 2pm on December 21. Over Christmas it will close at 4pm on December 24 and remain closed on December 25, 26 and 27, re-opening on the 28.
