Welcome to Leeds Kirkgate Market, one of the largest indoor markets in Europe, Kirkgate is a shopper’s paradise from fresh food, drink and fashion to jewellery, flowers, hardware and haberdashery.
At the heart of the Leeds retail scene since 1857, Leeds Kirkgate Market is home to some of the most characterful traders in the city, with businesses spanning generations and representing a wide range of nationalities including a Polish delicatessen and a Chinese supermarket, an Asian Bazaar every Wednesday morning and regular farmer’s markets.
Still the city’s shopping mecca, the market now also plays host to Jamie’s Ministry of Food continuing the market’s tradition of bringing great quality food and drink to the people of Leeds. Added to variety and value, a new Shop & Drop scheme, makes great quality, fresh produce more accessible than ever before.
