Whether you're hoping to branch out with your brunch dishes or diversify those dinner options, these excellent Sheffield food markets are some of the best spots in the city to tuck into an international array of uniquely delicious eats. From the former factories now dedicated to drinking, dining and dancing, to the restaurants doubling up as snack-sellers, we've found the best food halls and markets in Sheffield.
One of the largest independent food halls in the country, Cutlery Works is the former Neepsend factory fronting an incredible line-up of vendors. The Kelham Island venue is a hub for drinking and dining, with as many as 12 independent street food hubs serving everything from mouthwatering artisan chocolate, to fried chicken, fresh pizza and Balkan grills. The venue is a dedicated co-working space, with areas laid out for hot-desking, meetings and more - and with a great range of cocktails and craft beer on hand, it's also a top spot for after work drinks.
A slick food hall in Sheffield city centre, Kommune is swiftly gaining a reputation as one of the best places for international street eats in the whole city. From delicious Korean fried chicken, to big messy burgers and health-focused Middle-Eastern platters, the Castle Quarter venue is making no secret of its passion for international fare. And to wash it down? A crisp pint or kooky cocktail from their bar menu. More than just a dining destination though, Kommune offers a range of craft and wellness classes, including macramé workshops and a very enticing yoga and brunch combo.
With a changing line-up of impressive vendors, this drinking and dining complex in Kelham Island is home to one of Sheffield's best street food spots. Head over to Peddler Market on the first Friday and Saturday of each month and you'll be able to stuff your face with delicious snacks from across the globe, alongside catching live music and DJs playing 'til late. On the market off days you can still find some much-needed refreshment with a trip to their on-site taproom Factory Floor for craft pints and swish cocktails.
A former party palace in the heart of the city, OHM has pulled a slick pivot of late, transforming itself into a street food haven. The eats here range from New York-style slices and zingy chicken wings to moreish Portuguese fare and Mexican-Indian fusion cooking - meaning whatever you're in the mood for, you'll likely find something that hits the spot. If you're looking to really make the most of your visit though, head over on weekends for their epic bottomless brunch offering, which promises an additional two hours of free-flowing fizz alongside your meal.
Home to some of the best East Asian food in Sheffield across its three city centre eateries, Oisoi is the place to go if you're looking for delicious dishes and incredible interiors. Their Gatecrasher Apartments location is our favourite of the trio, as it mixes the experiences of a restaurant, deli and supermarket into one colourful package. Tuck into one of their signature 'bibimcups', soup noodles or even artisan pizza slices, and once you're full of tasty street food? Head over to the shelves and stock up on everything from seaweed and sweet treats, to fresh veg and tropical juices.
Built entirely out of disused shipping containers, Steelyard is the Kelham Island hangout to head for if you're looking for pocket-friendly eats and an electric party atmosphere. Their collection of bars, restaurants and retail outlets covers both levels of the complex, with vendors selling everything from fancy trainers to bacon sandwiches. Alongside offering some incredible meals, Steelyard boasts an extensive events programme, which runs from film screenings and late-night DJ sets, to monthly family-friendly street food markets.
