Thousands of shoppers, food buffs and music lovers descended on a popular city market which made its quarterly return.

Sharrow market once again popped up on Sharrow Vale Road offering a wide selection of food, arts and crafts and live music.

An estimated 5,000 Sheffield folk turned out for the street market and organiser Shelley Cockayne was delighted with how the day went.

She said: “It’s gone really smoothly. It’s been another fantastic occasion I can’t have any complaints.

“What has been great this year is we have had more and more people turning out to volunteer for us which makes it nearly easy.”

The popular street market has once again pulled in the crowds with demand for stalls again at a high this year.

The event, which has been running for over five years is going from strength to strength with footfall on the up again.

People flocked in their droves to sample Sheffield produce and something a bit more exotic, with many dishes from different nationalities on offer.

Shelley added: “Yet again we have had such a great mix of stalls such as Jamaican and Russian food.

“We’ve also had venison for people who are into their meat and lots of cake which obviously went down well.”

Sharrow market is set to return on Sunday, July 19.
