First visit to the Market on a Trip to Leicester and found the Market had loads of Fruit stalls among other stalls. Stall holders were friendly and there was a good and clean atmosphere.

Monday to Saturday but different stalls are on different days. The Market website has a traders directory if you want something specialised.
