Last weekend, I discovered a wonderful Christmas craft market in Leeds Corn Exchange, and the good news is, it is back in a fortnight’s time!
The Corn Exchange is one of Leeds’ most spectacular buildings and one that holds a lot of markets and events throughout the year including vinyl fairs, markets, craft stalls, and so on. At the moment, there is a big focus on all things Christmas-y and the Corn Exchange, not wanting to be left out is hosting a lovely market full of Christmas goodies.
The huge Christmas tree and other bits of decoration in the building are worth a look as they really make one feel like the holiday season is upon us. Also, the shops in the Corn Exchange are excellent as they are all independent local traders rather than huge multi national chain shops.
The market was all around the sides in front of the regular stores and sold all kinds of Christmas goodies, including hampers, children’s knitted Christmas jumpers, and tree decorations and more. I really recommend a visit to this market if you are in town and want some gifts and crafts.
The Corn Exchange is located at the top of Call Lane in Leeds City Centre, and the next time the Christmas Market is on will be on Saturday, 15th December.
