The Moor Market plays host to all things classic and quirky with a new monthly vintage pop-up market this Saturday 24 September.
The pop-up style event is a collaboration between The Moor Market and Sheffield Antiques Quarter and will feature around 40 Stalls of retro, vintage, arts, crafts, salvage, artisan wares and antiques.
‘Top Notch’ traders from the Quarter and in and around the city, as well as some amazing independent up-cyclers and makers, will take over the inside and outside of the market.
There will also be street food vendors offering tasty cuisine and local buskers providing entertainment throughout the day.
The pop-up is open from 8.00am until 5.30pm and entry is free. Discounted parking for Moor Market customers is available at the Eyre Street car park at £1.50 for 2 hours.
The idea was the brain-child of the markets team to create a year round events calendar to compliment the shopping offer.
Richard Eyre, Head of City Centre Management & Major Events for Sheffield City Council said: “We’re really excited to be working with Sheffield Antiques Quarter to bring these monthly pop-up events to the Moor Market.
“Vintage is very fashionable right now and there’s a huge appetite for it in Sheffield. We’re hoping these events will be popular with our regular customers and will also bring new customers into the market to experience all it has to offer”.
Hendrika Stephens, Chair of Sheffield Antiques Quarter, said: “The Antiques Quarter is thrilled to be partnering with the Moor Market. It’s such a great opportunity to promote the quarter in the city centre and will give traders from the quarter the chance to sell in a prime city centre location.
“The pop-ups are an excellent concept for the market, adding to what is becoming a vibrant, independent and local shopping hub in the city centre.
The vintage pop-up market is set to become a regular monthly event, with the dates for the rest of 2016 already booked in.
