If you’re a local to Leeds, then it is likely that you’ll have been to the Leeds Kirkgate Market at least once in your lifetime. However for visitors and tourists it may seem like a spot that is often overlooked. With a huge selection of different stalls and hundreds of individual traders selling everything from cabbages to computing parts and more, there is so much to do and see at the Kirkgate Market that you’ll be hard pressed for time!
First opened in 1822 as an open air market, the Leeds Kirkgate Market quickly grew and eventually developed to be a large scale covered market. More recently, the market was refurbished in the early 1990’s following fire damage from 1975 and now the building is actually a Grade I listed building.
With a huge range of products and with genuine help from local traders who have years of experience in their respective fields, whether you are buying all the ingredients for a cooked meal or just stopping by for a chat, the Leeds Kirkgate Market is the place to be. Plus by purchasing from the market you are putting money back into the local community as opposed to giving it to the larger scale brands.
