The stalls are laid out and traders are waiting in eager anticipation of their first sales – the opening day of Sheffield’s Moor Market has arrived.
After less than 18 months of construction work, the shiny new building offers everything from fresh food to clothing, bags and pet supplies.?The Star spoke to stallholders during busy preparations for the official launch, as well as visiting Castle Market during its final hours of trading.
Michelle Schofield, who runs The Nut Bar with her husband Philip, said she was ‘quite excited’ at the prospect of the opening day, while neatly arranging her stock on The Moor.
“I think we should have had a bit more time to get everything in, but we’re getting there,” she said.
“We’re wondering whether the customers from Castle Market will come – we hope they do.”?Philip, aged 55, said: “The number of people who’ve come up to me asking ‘are you moving?’ suggests that people will come. There’s no reason for them to ask if they’re not intending to.”
