Barnsley Markets

Changes due to COVID-19 (coronavirus)

Food stalls will be the only stalls trading at Barnsley Market until further notice in response to the latest government guidance on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Only stalls selling meat, fish, bread, fruit and vegetables, deli, dried goods and some confectionary will be trading.

The stalls will be located in the meat and fish section of the market and outside both market entrances, on Cheapside and May Day Green.
