VARIETY, QUALITY AND LOW PRICE, it’s what is all about at Leeds kirkgate Market. But will this survive Leeds Council’s plans for it?

  1. Yes, it seems great ! If i was in central Leeds more often I would be a regular visitor. Please save the market!!! I also wish that there were an extension of this market in Headingley. Headingley has a farmers market now and again, but this can often be expensive. I feel a good little market in Headingley would be fantastic and flourish… Not sure why someone in the council doesn’t arrange some land for this.

    Markets are fantastic I grew up in a market town near Doncaster, and so many of the little towns around Doncaster have markets, or at least used to. I also lived in London and there was always a little market everywhere you went. I think normal markets are needed! Not just the expensive farmers type. Sometimes you just want/need healthy AND cheap food. More markets please! Thanks for reblogging and for posting


  2. The outside fruit and veg market is particularly good for a bargain – I’ve come home with bags full of stuff for just a couple or three quid.


  3. Just heard that M & S are to open a tea bar in the market! This is of course where they started a penny bazaar in 1900, hopefully this latest move will not make it harder for independent traders, presently struggling, to keep going, or make this a further upmarket expensive retail outlet.
