Seven a Day Keeps the Munchies at Bay

April 8, 2014


The Yorkshire Evening Post recently highlighted the monthly Shop to Get Fitter tours around Kirkgate Market.
“It’s hard to imagine a better advert for eating healthily than the fruit and veg stalls at Leeds Kirkgate Market,” the article said. It’s a lot cheaper too! Last week a FoLKM member compared the prices at Kirkgate Market with the price of similar goods at Sainsbury’s. Kirkgate wins by a mile.
