A NEW market day has been announced for Barnsley town centre.

Current traders reported that their customers were asking why there was no open market on a Monday, so bosses have now given the green light for it to happen.

The first one - on April 13 - will have items for sale including everything from clothing to baked goods.

A spokesperson said: "We asked the traders if they felt there was enough custom. Sure enough we've now got an almost full new Monday market with just six stalls left to allocate.

"This new market will help ensure Barnsley continues to be renowned as one of the best market towns in England."
