Holiday Travel Guide
Leeds Kirkgate Market showing heritage architecture as well as a large group of people

Enjoy Asian cuisine and browse the range of trinkets, food and flowers in one of the largest covered markets in Europe.

With its 170 traders selling a great variety of products in an eclectic atmosphere, Leeds Kirkgate Market is a behemoth of a bazaar. It dates back to the early 19th century and has developed into an all-encompassing roofed market showcasing all types of food, quaint relics and clothing. Wander through this historic Victorian-style structure for a glimpse into local culture and traditions.

Purchase local and exotic fruits and vegetables from the many stalls. Visit the fish section to find the freshest catch for your dinner. The market has a meat sector as well as a bakery. Look for bargains among the flowers, clothing and intriguing knickknacks. Enjoy lunch at one of the quaint restaurants in the market. You’ll also find a range of stalls serving coffee, tea and smoothies.

Chat with the local traders and haggle over prices. Enjoy the multicultural experience, with a Chinese supermarket and a Polish delicatessen among the finest examples. Try shawarmas, chapattis, crêpes and the local specialty of Yorkshire pudding.

A South Asian bazaar is held here on Wednesdays, when you can purchase silk saris and Indian bracelets. Try the range of ethnic food from such countries as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. South Asian customs have integrated into the British mainstream culture. Attend a temporary exhibit in the events space of the market, which holds occasional festivals, concerts and fashion fairs.

Embark on a Kirkgate Market Heritage Tour and learn about the history of the market. The popular British retailer Marks & Spencer had its origin here. The market opens Monday through Saturday from early morning until late afternoon.

The Leeds Kirkgate Market is in the heart of the commercial district of the city. Arrive at Leeds Railway Station and walk northeast for less than 10 minutes to get here. Browse the nearby shopping options, such as Trinity Leeds, the Leeds Corn Exchange and Victoria Leeds.
