Welcome to South Yorkshire Country Markets


2019 heralds the centenary of the Country Markets movement (initially started as part of the WI) and during the year our various markets will join in the celebrations.  Watch for future details - a couple of images of the early origins can be seen here.

The winter of 2018/19 has so far been remarkably mild and with a late Easter, spring bulbs may be a more distant memory by then.

January always springs our marmalade producers into action with the arrival of the new crop of Seville oranges - try some from you local market freshly made it is something more than you can buy off a supermarket shelf.

With spring arriving our Markets will soon be displaying a wider range of garden plants and produce.  Buying a plant from our Markets see things suited to local growing conditions as well as a friendly face to offer advice.

Additionally some of our Markets will start again to spread their wings beyond their usual weekly presence by visiting a range of street markets and events.  Details are given in our events column.

Birthdays and other celebrations are year round and our Markets can provide a variety of hand crafted and hand made original gift ideas amongst a wide range of craft products which you can then complement with an appropriate and unique card.
