Leeds City Market – Interior

From Tom Hodgson:  “Leeds Kirkgate Market is an icon of Leeds. One of the largest covered markets in Europe it is worth visiting just to look at the amazing late Victorian architecture. The market has had a hard time over the last few decades and has always been a step behind the trends affecting the rest of the city. The stalls range traditional family run butchers to ethnic food shops and most recently trendy street food stalls. There is a palpable conflict between the old and the new in the area surrounding the market and it remains (for the time being) a glance of a Leeds which is fading fast in the wake of large scale development and gentrification.”
