Leeds Kirkgate Market is the city’s jewel in the crown and the birth place of the original Marks & Spencer penny bazaar. Our recent refurbishment will provide the market with a brand new flexible indoor space for specialist private operators, and a wonderful event space.
The programming of the Specialist Market area and Event Space is now taking place, so all private operators and business; please contact us as soon as possible to book the space. From our in November 2015 the space will be free for one year. We urge you to take this unique opportunity, but act quickly, once the word is out we’re sure the bookings will fill up very fast!
Our vision is to create a wonderful space where speciality private operators from the whole of Yorkshire and Humberside can trade, retail or showcase their products or services.
If your specialist market retails craft, fashion, jewellery, and textiles amongst others then we would like to hear from you. We have opportunities for specialist operators to book more than one day.
Certain markets that have a real specialism about them are invited to book weeks on end. These bookings can be repeated monthly if you wish.
