We’re here for original artists, crafters, designers and creative food producers as well as for anyone looking to buy something original and that little bit different in Leeds City Centre.
We provide a well establish and high quality street market in the centre of Leeds, operating our regular Saturday Arts, Crafts and Produce Market on Albion Place, by Byron Burger, Pizza Express, WH Smith and Pret A Manger, just a hop and a skip from Marks & Spencer’s/The Trinity Centre.
We only host producers of original work, so shoppers can be guaranteed not to find anything at our market that would be readily available in high street shops.
Whether you’re a creative person producing something original that you’re looking to sell, or looking to treat yourself or someone else come join in the fun – with over 20 stalls every week there’s something for everyone. Also take a look at our Facebook page where you’ll find more images of our fabulous traders and get a better idea of what goes on and the variety on offer.
We trade fortnightly on a Saturday from late March to September and then weekly through to Christmas.
Check our trading dates in the ‘Our Markets‘ section of this site.
