Leicester Market (Leicester, United Kingdom)

Leicester has been a market town for over 700 years. Today the Leicester market is a bustling cosmopolitan mix of over 300 stalls (fresh produce, books, leather goods, clothing) in the heart of the city. It is the largest covered market in Europe. The family of a local football celebrity who started his professional career with Leicester City FC are still fruit and vegetable traders here. In the centre of the market is the old Corn Exchange building, built in 1850 and flanked by stone steps. This now serves as a restaurant and bar. Outside is a stature of the Duke of Rutland. Adjacent is the Indoor Market hall which houses the fish market and a delicatessen. The original ornately designed Fish Market hall which had distinctly cast iron pillars was closed in the mid 1970s but was retained as part of the new structure. It can be approached from Cheapside (adjacent to the Clock Tower); from the corner of Granby Street and Horsefair Street and from any of the narrow streets and arcades leading from High Street and Hotel Street. OPENING HOURS: Outdoor: Monday to Saturday Indoor: Tuesday to Saturday Browsing Free.
