AT LAST! Work on Sheffield’s £17.5 million Moor Market will finally start in two months’ time – 14 years after the project to replace ageing Castle Market was first proposed.
Sheffield Council has appointed Kier construction to build the 79,000 sq ft building on empty land opposite Atkinsons, where old shops were bulldozed.

The new building will house a single-storey market hall to house 200 stalls, plus eight two-storey shop units fronting onto The Moor.
