Doncaster Markets are once again in the running to be named ‘Britain’s Favourite Market’ in the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA) Awards 2014.

NABMA crowned Doncaster ‘Britain’s Favourite’ in 2012 and ‘Britain’s Best’ in 2011.

Voting is currently open for next year’s awards which take place in Birmingham on Thursday 30 January, 2014.

Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster, said: “Doncaster’s historic markets are owned and operated by the council and continue to go from strength to strength, providing employment for around 1,000 people in the town centre.

“Food traders alone have a large annual turnover, similar to a major supermarket and an important contribution to the town centre’s overall economic performance.

“With around £1m worth of further regeneration work taking place in 2014, this is a very exciting time for Doncaster Markets.”

Full market days are Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.
