I'm only usually impressed with markets abroad, but this did it all. Firstly what an amazing building and so big. Please keep looking after it for generations to come. We wished we had more time to explore, but on our whistle stop tour we saw clusters of different foods, places to eat, old fashioned 'we sell everything' stalls, the unusual... More

We had tried to visit the market last time we were in Leeds but it is closed on Sunday's. Dropped in today before travelling home, glad we did! Lots of stalls with something for everyone! The market is generally split into sections, food, fabric, clothes etc. There are also cafes and hot food stalls. I'd definitely return when back in... More

My wife had never seen a proper market until Europe so this was her second chance after Liege market. I knew it would not disappoint and it didn't. Sure there is plenty of cheap tack there too but you have to realise the economy we live in and if you are a luxury traveller then this may not be for... More

What a brilliant market this is! You are so lucky having such a great market on your doorstep. Such a beautiful building and a fabulous array of stalls. Everything you could need is available and more. I couldn't believe the little fish bar where you can sit and eat oysters and other shellfish! Brilliant! Every stall has something or someone...

We visited for the weekend and had two trips to this fabulous market. It has a huge array of indoor and outdoor stalls and has a great vibe and atmosphere. The fresh produce is brilliant with great varieties of meat, fish, fruit and vegetables and flowers at excellent prices. You can buy clothes, get your hair done and have something... More

Regular visitor over the years while visiting Yorkshire but now what a dump. Excessive car park charges. Hard to find by car. Very poor quality stalls. Bought what looked like good quality meat and threw most of it away. OK if you are looking for secondhand clothes or cheap quality stuff. No bargains. Will not be back.

Kirkgate market has everything you would want from a market and more. In one of the most impressive buildings in Leeds, its a must see for visitors to the city. Currently undergoing major development, but still open and buzzing!

If you are visiting Leeds this place is a must see!! Beautiful architecture and a wide variety of fresh produce, quality products and of course it wouldn't be a market if there wasn't a bit tat amongst it all. It's unfortunate that this place is never heaving and doing a bustling trade because it's a great place to buy fresh... More

I've been to a lot of markets in the past and this one has to be the worst I have ever been to. It smells really bad! There isn't much of worth to see in this place. Not sure where all the good quality stalls have gone but it's pretty much filled with cheap tat these days. I felt a... More

Never been before but was visiting Leeds and went with my brother and sister-in-law who live locally to buy things to do a tapas evening. Got everything including amazing ox tail from one of the range of independent butchers, giant prawns and squid (happily cleaned by the fish monger), great value flowers for the table from one of the stalls,...
