Wool Market Traders… Where are they now?

Wool Market wide

It’s been six months since the Wool Market closed down for refurbishment and works are well underway to transform the historic building into a vibrant destination offering an enhanced retail and food offer to the people of Doncaster. As part of the scheme, traders who had previously been based in the Wool Market and some from the Irish Middle Market were relocated to other areas of the Market Estate so they could continue their businesses as part of the Doncaster Markets community. If you haven’t found them in their new locations yet, or you’re interested in some of what Doncaster has to offer, you can find more information below as we ask – Where are they now?
