As a resident of Holmfirth it is a shame that this market just doesn’t seem to be well supported and there are fewer and fewer stalls.

Visited here on a coach trip, last of the summer wine country. A little gem of a market of craft stalls, some great gift ideas and all very reasonably priced. I think it's on every other Saturday but definitely work a visit. The town of...More

A small market with sadly only half the stalls taken. Nevertheless, a nice choice of handmade goods such as cards, jewellery and accessories, cheese, pickles and relishes. I would have expected a larger selection of a small market town, especially one so frequented by tourists,...More

What a shame that this now appears to be a symptom of a systemic decline of the local market. Such unfulfilled potential. A few measly stalls forma market that meets infrequently. The building at least still acts as a useful venue for the many festivals...More

Mostly filled with tat apart from greengrocer, Coddy's farm and cheese lady and baker. What a shame Holmfirth cannot provide a proper farmer's market - very disappointing

Popped in for a look but only took a few minutes to walk around. Only a few stalls selling fresh food. Like most markets around the country they are dying out and almost extinct. Was probably good once.

A nice little place with a few local stalls selling produce, pastries, preserves, and bric a brac. Good to support our local traders.

Although the little market is pleasant enough, there is not much on offer....way less than 10 stalls on average. However with the right promotion the market could be quite thriving as the location is beautiful and the town gets many visitors passing through in addition...More

I've only ever been to the Saturday market. It always seems kind of ad hoc, as if someone only had the idea to set it up last week. This isn't helped by the building, which has no character whatsoever. There aren't very many stalls, but...More
