After much fascination, I finally made it to the indoor market in Kirkgate . My new friend and fellow foodie had promised to take me there and I wasn't about to refuse (especially if I was going to be accompanied by someone as passionate about good food as I am).

The market itself is fairly easy to find. It's located in a very beautiful Belle Epoque building, so it certainly isn't lacking in character.

If you're selective, you can find items for ridiculously cheap prices, especially fruit and vegetables; for example, five cloves of garlic cost £1, and two punnets of raspberries are the same price.

While my friend asked for cheese recommendations, I explored the seafood stand. I was so impressed by the diversity, with produce ranging from frozen Japanese-style lobster tails to enormous fish steaks. The atmosphere was very quaint and charming too; you could almost imagine you were stepping back into a simpler time before chain supermarkets and consumerism.

For students, the indoor market is definitely worth a trip. Not only will it save money for the foodies out there, but it's a very peaceful way to waste half an hour or so between lectures.
