Sheffield’s brand new and eagerly-anticipated Moor Market opened for business on Monday – with a “record-breaking” 25,000 people visiting.
The new £18m building replaces Castle Market, which closed its doors on Saturday having been a Sheffield fixture for 54 years. Sheffield has held a “Royal Charter” to hold markets since 1296.
Sheffield Live visited the market on opening day. Calvin Payne and Laurence Peacock – presenters of each Wednesday’s edition of our “Communities Live” programme – popped into the market and interviewed traders and shoppers.
