Leeds City Market

Leeds City Market claims to be the largest covered market in Europe!  They have everything ranging from food to clothing, shoes, bikes, and other kitschy knick knacks.  A good activity for a rainy day (of which here there are many) plus you can get very good deals on food items, especially if you come towards the end of the day!  I loved hearing butchers and producers yelling out their prices as I walked by ~ 

british cheddar..and sweeter cheeses with fruit (mature cheddar with branston pickle sandwiches are amazing) however must get to that on my next post ;)
cute breakfast spot...real "homestyle fry" as my friend said
UK specialities: scotch eggs .. basically a hard boiled egg wrapped in meat (a bit suspect if you ask me) and "black pudding" a misleading name, since it is basically blood sausage!
seafood - and look, there's a 10% student discount - the UK is great with student discounts.
the smells wafting from this chicken rotisserie place were heavenly! whole chickens 3 pounds, at the end of the day my friend got a whole for just 1! I took a leg home for dinner..mmm!
of course, fish and chips - which I admit, I have not tried proper fish and chips yet!
Maybe this weekend..x
