Trading on Sheffield's Indoor Markets

Trader with fruit and veg at Castle Market

Sheffield has two indoor retail markets, The Moor Market in the city centre and The Market Place in Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre which is 7 miles out of the city centre. Both are popular markets, with high footfall and a varied choice of products.

If you're interested in becoming a market trader on either of the indoor markets, please fill in an application form and return to Sheffield Markets. We'll consider your application on the basis of trade balance.

To find out what stalls are available and to download an application form, see stalls available.

If your application is accepted, you'll be required to enter into a legal agreement with ourselves. We charge a non-refundable administration charge to cover the costs involved in preparing the legal documents. This charge is £350.00 for the Market Place.

If you're not an existing trader at any of Sheffield’s indoor markets, you'll need to provide us with at least two references and two forms of ID. A bond of one calendar month's rent (minimum £500) is payable on signing your agreement.

In addition to your rent, you will be responsible for:

  • Publicity charge: £8.67 per calendar month for the Market Place (this amount varies if more than one stall is occupied)
  • Gas and electricity you use.
  • All food businesses must comply with food hygiene regulations and must be registered with the Environmental Health department. Call 0114 273 5774 for more information.
  • All traders must have public liability insurance cover for a minimum £5 million. You must supply details of the company, policy number and expiry dates before you begin trading. Joining the National Market Traders Federation also provides cover.

To find out what you can expect from Sheffield Markets, please read the Trader Charter documents below.
