Roadshow will market Barnsley market

Thursday 16th August 2012
Voucher vault: A shopper tries grabbing a bargain.

Cookery demonstrations, face painting and competitions will be held in the town centre this weekend as part of a campaign to encourage shoppers to use the market.


'Making Markets Matter' is a national campaign. Traders will encourage shoppers to buy local produce.


Master chef Geoff Tookey will give demonstrations on the hour from 11am using products from Barnsley Market. He will be cooking dishes including potato and cauliflower curry with flat bread, spicy chicken with couscous and aromatic creamy mushrooms with pilau rice outside the markets entrance on Cheapside.


And shoppers will be able to grab a bargain inside the voucher vault - an inflatable chamber, pictured, that blows the vouchers around.

I was born and grew up in Barnsley, and although we left many years ago, we always make a point of looking round the market whenever we come back. I think that it's one of the best in the country, especially the food hall. Everybody should support their market and independent traders, against the ever growing spread of supermarkets.
