Market redevelopment

Leicester is home to one of the most historic markets in the country. The new food hall opened in 2014 as part of a £9.2million redevelopment

Further information

The second phase of the market re development is almost complete. Watch our walk-through video on YouTube to see how it will look.

The food hall is open from 9am to 5.30pm from Monday to Friday, and from 9am until 4.30pm on Saturdays. Eight stalls, selling fresh meat, fish, seafood, game and poultry, as well as artisan cheese, fresh bread, cooked meats, olives and other delicatessen favourites, will fill the 5,500 square foot hall.

The glass and timber structure, next to the Corn Exchange, is the first phase of our £9.2 million redevelopment plan for Leicester Market and a new public square will replace the indoor market.

We also plan to re-locate recycling facilities, the customer service office and public toilets. This is a key project that's part our wider Connecting Leicester vision to reconnect the city.

The new square will attract new cafés, bars and businesses into the areas and provide the city with another desirable public space that will attract usage.

Below are two artist's impressions of how the new public space will look.
