Welcome to South Yorkshire Country Markets


The return to near normality continues and so do our Markets.  The pandemic has had an effect, not all bad.  It has made us all think hard about how we can continue to serve our loyal customers and has led to some changes in how we operate.  The most obvious change is the huge growth in cashless payments.  Before the pandemic cash was still the preferred method of payment for most customers, but as in most shops cashless payment has blossomed.  Although there is a cost to the Markets the upside is that with the demise of many local banks the need to use banks for cash deposit and change has reduced.

The opening of each Market has changed in most cases but we are nearly back in full.  The current position at each Market is as follows:

Holmfirth - the Market continues to be open for the usual hours and bacon sandwiches are now back as well! 

Hope Valley - now operates on the first Friday of the month                                    

Penistonethe Market continues to be open for the usual hours. 

Sheffield - the Market continues to be open for the usual hours.  Any enquiries please contact via

Tickhill - the Market re-opened on Friday 11 March 2022 with its usual hours 

Covid is still with us so please stay healthy.
