Cookery demonstrations and an Asian bazaar are among the activities taking place at the Moor Market this summer.

The first Moor Market Bazaar will take place tomorrow (Tuesday 13 June), with a range of Asian stalls selling clothes, jewellery, alcohol-free perfumes, loose fabric, halal sweets and more.

Previously a success in Rotherham, and now coming to Sheffield for the first time, the bazaar is also set to be held on forthcoming Tuesdays 20 June, 27 June and 4 July.

Then, a series of cookery demonstrations from nutritionist Hannah Bailey will begin on Saturday 24 June.

Hannah, the market’s first in-house nutritionist, will give presentations on the fourth Saturday of every month, focusing on eating well, healthy living, and the preparation of nutritionally-balanced fresh meals.

Councillor Mary Lea, cabinet member for culture, parks and leisure at Sheffield City Council, said: “With rising footfall and new traders, the Moor Market is really going from strength to strength at the moment, and it’s great to see this line-up of summer activities being added to our events schedule.

“We hope that the Asian bazaar will be a success and will become a regular feature in the market, offering something that bit different to our usual stalls and giving customers more choice.

“It’s also great to have Hannah from Wise Choice Nutrition joining us, especially as we think we may be the first market in the country to have our very own nutritionist. Her presentations will give shoppers the opportunity to learn something new, see new recipes cooked from scratch, and then buy the fresh ingredients right there and then.”

Diane Jarvis, manager of Sheffield BID, said: “One of the BID’s key focuses is achieving higher visitor numbers and a vibrant city centre. The Moor Market is a key part of this.

“The redevelopment of The Moor is bringing more visitors to the city centre, and events like these help promote the city as a thriving visitor destination.”

The Moor Market is open six days a week, Monday to Saturday, from 8am until 5.30pm.

New traders are always welcome, and can choose from various options for leasing a stall, including affordable pop-up shop opportunities. Renting stalls starts from as little as £25 per day.
