Leeds Market was once bustling and vibrant, with all sorts of bargains, and businesses which had thrived for generations. Yet, for years now, it’s been obvious that there has been a concerted attempt to destroy Leeds Market as we know it. The rich and powerful of Leeds think this beautiful building is wasted on ordinary folk, so by hiking up... More

Leeds Kirkgate Market has had a revamp this year and an area of the indoor market has been cleared of stalls to make a more social area. The numerous "street food" stalls offer delights such as Jamaican Jerk Chicken, curries, pizza, noodles and our favourite Yorkshire wraps! Prices are fair, similar or lower than the trendy Trinity Kitchen nearby. The... More

I love this market and visit regularly when I'm in Leeds. It's a very imposing building and there are loads of stalls selling wonderful things. If I lived in Leeds I would get all of my fish, meat, fruit and vegetables here because everything looks so fresh and the prices are unbelievable. There's also jewellery and make up stalls, caribbean... More

Huge selection of covered stalls that caters for anyone on a budget. Situated in a lovely market hall with ornate features. Do look out for the tiny Marks and Spencer's stall and the food court looked very nice with a wide range of English and ethnic food. I recommend Sweet Saaeda which is a Tunisian cafe serving Tunisian specialties.

This is still a great place to shop on a budget particularly for freash food. Fruit and veg at (compared with supermarkets) silly prices. The newly refurbished hall that is now the performance arena and street food hub is great. Make sure to stop off at the Teapot cafe for great coffee at about half that charged by the non-taxpaying...

The smells were horrific and intolerable; the place was filthy; the folks hanging around inside and out were threatening (panderers, drug users, alcoholics...). Certainly not a tourist destination NOR one I would want to frequent even if I were a local!!! We walked in and immediately walked out.

Fantastic place with so many stalls selling everything you can imagine. - individual rather than all the same shops found in every city
