We managed to get to this place when in town for a couple of nights. It’s great to see that there are still some traditional markets around, selling fresh fruit & vegetables rather than knick-knacks & cheap goods. Even though we were constrained for space,...More

The famous Leicester Market is the place to go for high quality products whether it’s for meat and vegetables for Sunday lunch or a pair of jeans. Traders banter beats supermarkets and there’s somewhere to get a beer, coffee, lunch, etc. Highly recommended

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