Visit the vibrant Barnsley Market

Barnsley is a unique 21st Century market town that has a growing reputation for quality. Now housed in The Glass Works – the new leisure and retail development in the town centre – Barnsley Market is home to over 90 stalls fronted by charismatic traders selling a range of products that meet the market’s core values of quality, value and tradition. With more stalls outside and throughout the borough, there’s something for everyone.

Upstairs in the market, you’ll find Market Kitchen, a food court full of flavours from around the world. Alongside the three traditional cafes, you’ll find Turkish, Balkan, Indian, Thai, rotisserie duck, pizza, coffee, wacky desserts and a bar stocking cocktails, gins, craft beer and more.

A thriving town centre

Barnsley has grown into a lively shopping and social centre where designer boutiques rub shoulders with trendy bars.

The town’s Victorian Arcade hosts independent men’s and women’s fashion stores, while the food and drink scene has exploded and now offers independent micropubs and trendy cocktail bars alongside Brazilian, Italian, Mediterranean, Indian, tapas and smokehouse restaurants.

The Glass Works is set for completion in late 2021, and will bring a Cineworld Cinema, Superbowl UK, and Nando’s alongside additional high streets favourites, who’ll join popular retailers like JD Sports, Next, Sports Direct, TK Maxx, M&S, New Look, Deichmann and more.
