This traditional covered market is one of the biggest in Europe with fresh food stalls that will get your taste buds tingling.
At the heart of the Leeds retail scene since 1857, Kirkgate Market is home to some of the most characterful traders in the city. Some businesses have been here for generations and represent a wide range of nationalities including a Polish delicatessen, a Chinese supermarket, an Asian Bazaar every Wednesday morning and regular farmer’s markets.
The wide variety of food stalls in this grand Edwardian building offers a feast for the senses and it’s a great place to interact with locals who still regard the market as the city’s shopping mecca. Many of the finest restaurants in Leeds source their fresh fish and vegetables at Kirkgate Market, which demonstrates the quality of the produce on offer.
Kirkgate Market is just a short walk from Leeds train station, which is around 2 hours 30 minutes north of London.
