The sun was out today and so I took a lunch time stroll to Leeds Kirkgate Market to buy some ribbon. It has been a while since I visited. Kirkgate is the largest indoor market in Europe with 800 stalls.
It is a feast for all the senses. The smell of cheese, bread, the chatter of shoppers not to mention the beautiful architecture. You have to find a quiet corner and look upwards.
The beautiful iron and glass roof
Kirkgate Market is the spot where our beloved retailer, Marks and Spencer's opened their very first penny Bazaar in 1884.
