Market Place Europe Returns to Sheffield

Mouth-watering French pastries, Nutella crepes and churros are just few of the things that graced the stalls of the Global Village Market at Sheffield’s Fargate.


Among the vibrant stalls, one can try French, German Polish, Dutch, Spanish, Jamaican, Moroccan and Greek cuisine. There is something for everyone – from simple cupcakes, brownies and burgers to freshly prepared paella and noodles.


There is also opportunity to sample and buy various types of cheese, olives and hot sauces from Wiltshire Chilli Farm, based in Melksham near Bath.

While she has not been able to try anything this year because she is busy with her trade, Alison Needham, 45, confessed that she had tried the food last year and it had been delicious.

“I think it’s great that the people of Sheffield get to see products from all over the world. It’s nice to see the city centre vibrant and busy with the market,” she added.

Apart from food, there were also other types of goods – knitwear, dream catchers, figurines, scented candles and soaps. The florist also attracted a lot of people with its myriad of plants, birds houses and wooden figures.



The market runs from this Wednesday to Sunday, and it is open from 9am to 5pm.
