Barnsley market

Barnsley's famous market is over 700 years old and has over 300 stalls located in both indoor and outdoor areas.

It's a great place to find anything and everything.

Only the best and highest quality fresh produce is available sought from local suppliers. Our market has a wonderful selection of fresh meats available, we have daily deliveries of fresh fish and provide a wide range of fresh fruit and vegetables. If you are looking for carpets, cosmetics, hair pieces, specialist items for hobbies and the home they are all available at our markets. Our spacious cafes provide a welcome place for a well deserved coffee break.

Freshly cut flowers are delivered to the market daily. Classic arrangements to luxury bouquets, seasonal decoration to house plants, they are all available at Barnsley market.
