Market Parade – the temporary market building under Barnsley town centre’s
multi-storey car park – will close for one day only on Monday 24 September
to safely allow initial demolition works to take place that will enable the
next phase of the Glass Works project to commence.

The demolition works will take place on Sunday 23 and Monday 24 September.
Market Parade will open for business as usual from Tuesday 25 September. May
Day Green Market, the newly opened Food Hall and the open market will trade
as normal.

Councillor Roy Miller, Cabinet Spokesperson for Place, said: “The safety of
our traders, customers and staff during the demolition phase of works is
paramount which is why we have had to make the decision to close Market
Parade .

“We’re committed to working with our traders throughout the regeneration of
the town centre, and very much look forward to welcoming them into their new
home in The Glass Works at the start of November.

“It’s incredibly important that the people of Barnsley continue to support
our famous markets throughout the regeneration work and beyond the
completion of The Glass Works in 2021.”

Market Parade – one of two temporary homes for Barnsley Market traders along
with May Day Green – is still open for business as usual until the new
Market Hall opens in The Glass Works, with an official opening set to take
place on Saturday, 3 November.

This follows the hugely successful opening of the new Barnsley Market Food
Hall on 31 August – the first part of The Glass Works to open to the public
and the first market to be open six days a week, with the addition of
Thursday openings.
