Leicester Market

Love local produce at Leicester Market - there’s no better place to stock up on food essentials!

The Food Hall butchers offer a large selection of quality meat and poultry. Deli traders have a fantastic variety of artisan cheeses, cooked sliced meats, bacon and local pork pies to create a lovely deli-style buffet spread. Two quality fishmongers display a wide selection of fish and seafood: king prawns, scallops, salmon, seabass, cod, tuna and even swordfish! Fancy fresh lobster? No problem!

The market is the best place to get quality fruit and vegetables in Leicester at very competitive prices. Stock up to make sure you get your five (or ten!) a day. There is also exotic produce on offer from a range of speciality traders offering African, Caribbean and Indian vegetables. You will also find household goods to add an extra flourish to your home – carpets, bedding, curtains, plants and more can be purchased.

Leicester market is currently undergoing major refurbishment works. There is a temporary market on Green Dragon Square, behind the market, that will be open during the refurbishment of the old market site. Find out more here.

48 stalls and 10 container units have been installed under a weatherproof canopy, ensuring that trading can continue during the works. Work to refurbish the market is due to get under way in January, and is projected to be completed by Christmas 2024.
