The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals


Sun. 17 July 2022 at 10:00–16:00

Free entry

Pollen is an inner-city flower market for Sheffield, from the team that brought us Peddler. It's a monthly celebration of all things botanical – taking over a corner of Castlegate with plants, flowers, fresh produce and more. You'll find Pollen in the freshly colourful Grey to Green public space, just off Lady's Bridge.

Pollen launched in September 2021 as part of Castlegate Festival, and now takes place on the third Sunday of each month.

As well as an abundance of greenery, there'll also be live music hosted by Pink Wafer, kids' activities, coffee, and a varying array of food stalls.

Check the Pollen website to find out who'll have stalls at the next event.
