Castle Market in Sheffield is great. It’s an institution. But it’s not a patch on Leeds Market, if I’m being honest.
Whilst Castle Market hides within a big, ugly run-down building (currently) that scares and intimidates the average Joe, Leeds Market is across from the ‘posh’ Victoria Quarter and is housed in a stunning building that’s been extended over time. It’s huge, and is ALWAYS busy.
The front section in the original hall is my favourite bit – it’s filled with cafes, fruit stalls, florists and the most amazing traditional sweet shop which sells nostalgic sweets that remind me of my days using up my spending money in Wine Line.
The atmosphere. The food. The colour. The people. It all adds up to a bloody good market.
Oh and Café Moor – the one just inside the entrance furthest away from Corn Exchange near the florist. The one that’s always busy. There’s a reason it’s always busy – they do some amazing wraps. I had a flafal wrap today, and will be trying the lamb one next week!
Bloody love Leeds Market – Sheffield, I hope you’re paying attention!
