Mexborough’s market, which dates back more than 800 years, moved to the current Market Hall and outdoor base in 1975.

Peter Davies, Mayor of Doncaster, said: “Improving markets across the borough is one of my priorities.

“This rent offer is a great way for traders to try out Mexborough market before signing up to a longer-term lease.”

Mexborough Councillor Sue Phillips added: “With over 90 stalls Mexborough market has a fantastic range of goods on offer, from fresh fruit and vegetables to meat, fish and much more.

“The market is well supported by the local community and I would encourage traders to take up this introductory offer.”

The full market is open is from 9am to 4pm, Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays, although many traders in the Market Hall open six days a week Monday to Saturday.

Anyone interested in taking a stall at the market is asked to call 01709 582036.
