Our Stall at the Market
Success at Friends Leeds Kirkgate Market’s stall on the 23rd of October!!. We talked to hundreds of people about the situation of the Market, exchanged ideas with traders and even with the Manager in the stall we held as part of the Leeds Loves Shopping week celebrations (!). We have to say that the council and Market office were really helpful in helping us set up this stall.
At the stall we had a price comparison of how many fruits and vegetables you get for £5 at Sainsbury and at the Market which showed a huge difference. We also had leaflets about the history of the Market provided by the Markets office which were very popular and leaflets about our campaign and information about the Eastgate development. The most popular area of the Market however was The Market tombola with items gathered across the market, from handmade hats, sweets, toys and toilet rolls to shellfish! Many of these were donated by traders so a huge thanks!
