With over 40 hot & cold food stalls, craft stalls and live band music
To help comply with Covid-19 restrictions, please note:
- DON'T COME if you have any symptoms of the Covid-19 virus
- We are expecting all adults and teenagers to wear a face covering unless you have a reason not to
- Think of others and keep your distance as much as possible;
- There are fewer stalls this time so more space than usual. Please use it!
- We'll have marshals trying to make sure the area doesn't get too crowded - listen to them and cooperate
- At busy times we might have to have a one-in-one-out system
- Please leave your dog at home.
- Toilet space will be very limited so please ‘go’ before you come
- Don't touch anything on a stall without asking the stallholder - they will probably ask you to use hand sanitizer first
- Stallholders are encouraged to accept card payments only - but best bring some cash as well for the smaller stalls. ,
MARKET DAY ROAD CLOSURES
Nether Edge Rd & Glen Rd will be closed to traffic from 9am - 5pm. Please avoid parking on these roads the night before.
For traders, we will be operating a one-way system before and after the market.

Yesterday (24 April), Sheffield City Council announced the shared launch of two new brilliant resources to support Sheffield children and young people (aged 0-24) and their families in lockdown.
Create Sheffield’s new website hosts a series of fun, creative adventures for young people, children and their families, brought together by Create Sheffield and their partner arts and cultural organisations from across Sheffield. The launch comes at the end of the week which should have seen the start of the summer school term. The website’s activities have been transformed into #homeadventures to try in lockdown. Participants are encouraged to share what they get up to on each home adventure on social media, and to invent their own #homeadventures to share with others across in the city.
‘50 Things to Do before you’re 5’ is also launching a Sheffield-focused version of their website and app. This fantastic resource particularly aimed at the under 5s has been funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government and special additional material has been put onto the website to help with its use for families in lockdown.
The app offers alternatives to the exciting visits available in Sheffield, with links to museum websites and ideas for home and garden. The 50 Things include activities that are based on research of how children learn. More importantly, they are low/no cost, accessible to every child aged 0 to 5 across the city and are great fun.
Families can get involved and share their adventures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #50ThingsSheffield #homeadventures
Free e-Library during 'lockdown'
Have you exhausted all your literary content in the house? Sheffield's e-library can help.
Sheffield Libraries subscribes to a digital platform called RBdigital.
It is a simple to use app for your Phone, Tablet or Computer, and can give you access to a variety of library services. These include Magazines, ebooks, current magazines, audiobooks and comics.
With much thanks to the Carterknowle and Millhouses residents group...
"You really don't need to put a name to the bird to enjoy its song, but most people recognise some birds' songs and usually wish they could know what they've heard. Well, Mark Avery can help you a bit with that because in this time of lockdown he has been writing a series of blogs about bird song: what particular birds sound like and bits and pieces of science, literature and personal stories thrown in. There are 20 short blogs on bird song so far and they lead you through some of our commoner songsters, and tell you something about them. At this time of year, more and more bird species are arriving back with us from their wintering grounds in Africa and he will be writing about them over the next few weeks too.
Here are links to the first 20 published blog posts. See https://markavery.info/blog/
This series of blog posts is illustrated with Tim Melling's photographs and the sounds come from the xeno-canto website.
