Wakefield Open Market

Wakefield’s new open market has launched in the Cathedral Precinct in the heart of the city centre, offering a wide range of products including fresh fruit and vegetables, bread and baked goods, clothing, cosmetics, household products, sweets, street food and much more.

The new open market runs every Thursday to Saturday, and is ideally situated between the city’s two major shopping centres – Trinity Walk and The Ridings Shopping Centre.

Thursday’s market has a special ‘world’ theme, with clothing, food and other products from across the globe. Friday’s market also has an additional ‘collectables and pre-loved’ theme which complements the existing stalls.

Catering and street food on offer include noodles, falafel, hot and cold sandwiches, jacket potatoes and salads.

Wakefield Market Hall

Wakefield Market Hall on Union Street has a wide range of products and services on offer including clothing, jewellery, watch repairs, cosmetics, traditional sweets, greetings cards, art, hair extensions, lingerie, hats, rugs, bespoke curtains, clothes alterations, health products, shoe repairs and shoe sales.

At the moment the Market Hall is undergoing a refurbishment and many traders have moved out of the hall and only a handful of stalls remain open. The Caffe Olivia is currently open inside the Market Hall and provides a selection of freshly roasted Lattes, Cappuchinos, Chocolate, Teas, soups and soft drinks plus a delicious range of cakes, gateauxs, fruit pies, biscuits and muffins and more.
