  • A wonderful place even just for a browse, lot of things happening in the street food hall. Well worth a visit from the modern new parts of the market to the oldie world architecture. 
  • Tremendous market with obsolete bargain. We spent nearly 5 hours busy shopping in the market, from flowers to home accessories, kitchen needs to fresh meats. Fish kiosks were brilliant and we brought ...  more »
  • Always been one of the best of its kind. The top market had excellent stalls with the lower extension and outdoor market being OK. New street food area is excellent

  • One of the best markets in the UK. Brilliant selection of food, veg, flowers and household goods. I love shopping here for fabric and grabbing work lunch. Love the new food/family area which allows families to enjoy activities while sitting and eating. Lots of people complain about the stage area but I really love that its become a social area for the people of Leeds. Great job! Recommend the Moor Cafe.
  • OK so I'm being an old git here but I remember when we got coach loads visiting the market esp. At Xmas. Leeds City Council have managed, all by themselves, to completely ruin the market. I in preference head over to Bradford Ostler market which retains the traditional market atmosphere. Why has this cropped up as a place I've visited? You walk through the market to get to the bus station.
  • A very good variety of different things and food here. The nut stall has wonderful lexia raisins.
  • Very good lots of shops and other things very cheap only problem if you can't pay with card
  • I travel here for my meat and veg on a weekly basis great stalls all round and excellent value for money.
