Headingley Farmers Market

Headingley Farmers Market is a highly successful Farmers Market in North West Leeds. The Monthly market (2nd Sat) has over 20 food stalls and there is music provided by a range of local groups.

We are committed to these core values :

  • Providing good quality food direct from the producer, mostly from within a radius of 30 miles of Leeds.
  • Being a focal point for the community
  • Providing food that the community wants – so people can do a full range of food shopping here.

It is accredited by FARMA, is the winner of FARMA‘s Community Spirit Award 2011 and of the Yorkshire Life “Best Farmers Market” 2011 in its prestigious Yorkshire Food and Drink awards.

The Market is an enterprise of Headingley Development Trust, a locally owned enterprise. it is managed andorganised by a group of volunteers. They appoint a paid site co-ordinator and a group of young people who erect and dismantle the stalls.

A small group of residents from Headingley decided to start the Farmers Market. We hoped that it would be one way of regenerating the area which had lost many of its fresh food shops. It was becoming increasingly less attractive for families to live in as the proportion of multi-occupied student houses increased.

The Market was launched in September 2006 and has grown from strength to strength. it is used by all members of the community and is now the place to food shop, to meet friends and to have fun on a Saturday morning.
