Barnsley Markets

Changes due to COVID-19 (coronavirus)

Our outdoor market has now reopened. All traders, both indoor and outdoor, have carried out assessments ensuring the safety of customers and staff and are now open again on a 4 day week. The Markets are open Wednesday to Saturday 8.30am to 3pm.

Shoppers are encouraged to visit alone and to adhere to social distancing throughout the market. Shopping visits should be carried out as quickly as possible to allow other shoppers to come into the market and to shop and support the traders. There will be limited access to public toilets, no seating in the market as well as hand sanitisation stations inside and outside.

Market Kitchen and close contact business including hairdressers and beauticians are expected to reopen on Saturday 4 July pending further details being announced from the government.

A new town centre

A big part of the plans is to make the town the go-to destination for shoppers and leisure seekers. Top of their list will be The Glass Works, a new retail and leisure destination. The new market will sit at the heart of the redevelopment.
