Leeds Kirkgate Market stands on the brink of its biggest change in more than 100 years thanks to a £12m investment. Neil Hudson reports.
Leeds Market is about to change forever. Hopefully for the better. Its operators, Leeds City Council, will this year outline an ambitious £12m revamp, which will see a new entrance on George Street, moving Butchers’ Row and the demolition and re-build of the 1976 stalls.
While it’s no secret Kirkgate Market has been struggling for some time, take a walk around the historic market and you’ll see why savvy shoppers spend their money here – there are bargains everywhere and any of the butchers will proudly tell you how their produce beats the supermarkets on price and quality any day of the week.
