Although Sheffield’s markets occupied the same area of the city for 700 years, it was a constant battle to ensure the markets remained suitable for the shoppers and traders. At times, these changes were major, involving relocations and demolitions. At others, more minor alterations, such as changes to opening times, were deemed appropriate. The following files contain transcriptions and research notes produced by our volunteers while examining historical documents held in Sheffield’s Archives and Local Studies Library. They explore some of the market changes through committee meeting minutes, reports and correspondence.
