Welcome to South Yorkshire Country Markets


For most of our markets the period leading up to Christmas is the busiest time of the year.  If you want a good place to buy home made Christmas fayre then where better to start.  Treat yourself, and those you love at this festive time of year.

Some of our markets will also be busy attending external street markets and details are given in the events listing.  In the week before Christmas there may be some adjustment to opening times so please contact the individual market for details.  After Christmas most markets usually take a short break and again you should contact the individual market for details.

Finally we would like to thank all our lovely customers for their continuing support and we wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR

The start of the year also saw us welcome Headingley Country Market to our number.  They are a hardy lot operating a stall alternately in Headingley and Horsforth every other week.  Unfortunately we now have to say goodbye to one of our longer established markets - Tickhill had to cease trading on 28 April when it held its last market.  It has had problems in attracting sufficient producers to make the market viable especially since the end of the pandemic.  They will be missed.

Our markets are all open for their usual times.  The current opening position at each Market is as follows:

Headingleyat Headingley Farmer's Market (2nd Saturday) and Horsforth Market (1st Saturday) every month
