Meet the Traders


We have over 200 traders working at six markets in the Wakefield area, selling a wide variety of goods and services.

What you see when you visit will be bright, bustling stalls, busy with shoppers and alive with the sounds, sights and smells of market day. But that's only the public front; behind the scenes in the early morning and late evening, the traders will be busy setting up, packing up and, of course, stocking up for the next day.

Each and every one of them have a story to tell and we want to share them; so click on the market link below and find out more about the people you'll find behind our stalls.
