Borough Market is a Victorian covered market in Halifax, West Yorkshire, England. The market occupies a town centre site between Southgate, Albion Street and Market Street. The glass and wrought iron covered marketplace, surrounded by stone built shops and accommodation, was built between 1891 and 1896 and opened by the future King George V and Queen Mary. The design included three public houses on the Market Street side and fishmongers' shops on Albion Street with the remaining exterior shops all being butchers' shops. The award winning market is open six days a week with some 125 market stalls.

  • Really nice place with quite a few individual stalls. The butchers stalls are particularly nice and my dog is even happy as they sell big raw bones for him. The market has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are friendly with reasonable prices.
  • I must admit I remember coming to this market over 20 years ago at the age of 20.. this market hasn't changed at all (thank god ... there are new stalls and stall keepers but overall the market is the same .... I have never ever seen this market empty I'm glad to say ,with some beautiful architecture to look at ... this is one of the best market halls I have ever been to. I hope it never changes ....
  • Great for a bargain. Stall holders pleasant and friendly. Clean toilets.Small cafe.Varied items for sale good position for shoppers.
  • This is a lovely little cobbled indoor market. Has a nice range of shops and feels very cozy and steeped in history
  • Great victorian market. Fantastic stalls. I would highly recommend going there to anyone.
