Doncaster Market development plan
The new look Wool Market opened on 26 March 2019 following a major overhaul.
What's the development?
The famous and historic Wool Market benefited from a major renovation with over £3 million of Sheffield City Region Local Growth Funding seeing it transformed into a vibrant and bustling destination all week long and into the evenings.
The Wool Market has now become a more attractive place to visit with a wide range of retail traders. The makeover has also meant the markets area can host more events liked Armed Forces Day and the Delicious Doncaster Food and Drink Festival. This encourages more people to visit the area to see how much it has improved and enjoy the new experience.
