Overlooking the bridge built as an ode to a lost love, Pollen will revive Sheffield’s ancient heart with the long-awaited return of its once famous flower market. Forming part of the Grey to Green initiative, Pollen plays a pivotal role in bringing the much missed colours, scents and sights back to Castlegate, breathing life into a part of town that was once the gateway to the city.
Offering a curated programme of events throughout the year, Pollen will deliver an abundance of greenery, live music and art, local produce and more to the people of Sheffield. Whether you’re a plant and flower lover, fresh produce enthusiast or in need of a fun Sunday activity, be sure to make Pollen a monthly date for your diary.
You’ll find Pollen Market, overlooking the River Don as part of the Grey To Green Project in Castlegate. We’re situated on a beautiful stretch of land between the Tap & Barrel pub and Yorkshire Artspace.
The market is a short walk from Sheffield Station and by tram, the nearest stop is Fitzalan Square. If you are arriving by bus, you’ll want to alight at Waingate or Snig Hill. If you are a cyclist, you'll find us on Sustrans National Cycle Network Routes 6 & 627 and the Inner Ring Cycle Route. Lastly, If you are driving or getting a taxi to Pollen, use the postcode S3 8LB.
