Sheffield’s Moor Market played host to all things classic and quirky with a new vintage pop-up market. The monthly event, a collaboration between the Moor Market and Sheffield Antiques Quarter, featured around 40 stalls of retro, vintage, arts, crafts, and antiques.The idea is part of a Moor Market plan for a year round events calendar to complement the regular shopping offer. Sheffield Live! reporter Simon Thake spoke to stall owners and marketeers.
The Moor Market will begin opening from 8am tomorrow, to encourage more shoppers to come shopping in the market and boost trade. The market currently opens at 8.30am, but traders want people to be able to visit the market before they can start work in the city centre.
Market traders in the new Moor market are going to get a 50% reduction in rent in the hope that the new prices will encourage more people to set up stalls. Family days and other activities are also going to be held during the summer to try and attract more people to the area. The old Castle Market is currently been knocked down. The number of shoppers expected at the market has never been achieved and because of the recession many stall holders have had to close down.
