In total we received over 1,500 nominations, many of which expressed their admiration and love for our traders and their local products.

The Trader of the Year competition ran from 1st December 2014 until 3rd January 2015 and gave Leeds Market shoppers the chance to tell us which of our traders are outstanding and really go the extra mile for their customers.
