Leeds Market
Leeds Kirkgate Market
The dominating Edwardian facade of the Kirkgate Market is just one of the delights of this unique building which claims to be the largest indoor market in Europe. The site of the first Marks and Spencer stall, it has traditionally been the birthplace of many successful buisnesses. Like many retail outlets in Leeds it has experienced change with many of the traditional stalls giving way to modern shops. Sonic City would like to hear from you if you can recall any shops and stalls which are no longer in the market? We want to hear your stories about any memorable stallholders, shops, callers and the goods you bought there. Listen to some of the stories in this collection for ideas and inspiration.
