Barnsley Markets

A new place to find all your old favourites

Barnsley Indoor Market opened in 2018 following an extensive refurbishment programme. The former Metropolitan Centre was transformed to become a new home for the world-class Barnsley Market.

On the ground floor there are currently two entrances one from May Day Green and one from Cheapside, the main town centre shopping precinct.  A third entrance will be created as part of The Glass Works development leading from the new covered town centre walkway.

The entrance from Cheapside leads through the main fresh produce offer which includes many of your old favourites such as Barkers Butchers, Keith's Quality Meats and Morley Meats, fishmongers Joseph Cliffe and Tom Hall, and the fantastic Deli Butcher.  New stalls in this area include the fabulous Cheese Shop and opening soon will be a baker, a frozen food shop and butcher offering rotisserie cooked chickens as well as cooked and raw meats.

On the ground floor of the market, as well as 15 fresh food stalls you’ll also find 68 stalls including fresh fruit and vegetables, bakers, florists, as well as some of the famous faces from the markets including Pats for Pants, Sailor Sid’s and Devine Footwear.  

Upstairs there are a further 46 stalls including fashion, household textiles, wool, hairdressers and of course familiar faces such as Dantina Foods.

Fresh fish, locally made cheese and a Barnsley chop - what could be better!

Open Monday to Saturday 8.30am to 4.30pm.
