To the south of the open market is the markets multi-storey car park operated by National Car Parks (NCP). From across Vicar Lane, the markets are connected to Briggate via the Victoria Quarter.AccessLocal and regional buses heading out of the city centre, as well as long-distance National Express coaches, stop at Leeds City bus station, to the rear of the complex.

  • We love shopping at the market! Great fresh products. Fish, meat, vegetables and fruits at a much better rice than supermarkets and better quality. Plus the atmosphere is brilliant. It's a shopping experience! Wish we could go every week.
  • Great indoor market, lots of stalls from meats and fish, veg, haberdashery, clothes and gadgets.. Pretty much anything you want. There are lots of choices for food especially in the fairly recently cleared hall they now use for events (sad so many stalls were lost to make space).
  • Awesome old fashioned market. Good value on meat and fish very fresh vegetables. A good selection of other products too. Good assortment of food stalls from all over the world
  • Worth doing seafood, poultry & vegetable shopping. Bargaining skills is not essential as prices are good enough. If parking, make sure to park in NCP next to it and have your receipts validated after shopping to have a discounted parking.
  • Fantastic variety of stalls/shops.Great fish .Meat & veg market. Cafes, food places to eat. Everything you need from a ball of wool or new rug to a new dress or bunch of flowers. The market has been revamped .There is both an indoor & out door market with lots of choice & bargins. ... definitely worth a visit.
