Chapel Allerton Community Market: On The First Sunday of Each Month

Have you checked out Chapel Allerton Community Market yet? If not, you’re missing a real treat. 

Chapel Allerton is one of the top two places to live in Leeds, according to Manning and Stainton. It’s an accolade that’s surely justified owing to the fantastic monthly community market and the bustling high street, filled with independent businesses, a rich array of eateries and truly amazing community spaces. Chapel Allerton is definitely worth a visit.

Chapel Allerton Community Market recently celebrated its first birthday and is now home to over thirty small, local businesses on the first Sunday of each month. The celebration that was doubly exciting when followed by the news the market is expanding across two venues in Chapel Allerton.

The owner of Ottermoon Design who is a Chapel Allerton market trader and resident says:

“The market has been a fantastic place to meet people – traders and locals alike – and provides a great space for me to sell my Lino prints and increase awareness for my baby business, during a time when money is tight for many and us tiny independents can be lost in the crowd.”

Chapel Allerton Community Market is now the largest suburban Market in Leeds, with over fifty unique small businesses booked in to trade with them up until Christmas. On the first Sunday of each month, you can now find stalls both in the main square and the primary school playground. The extra space has allowed the curation of even more amazing local artisans, as well as adding street food, a community performance space for buskers, choirs and dance groups and some free charity stalls.

The market encourages any interested artisans, charities, buskers and street performers to get in touch on social media @chapel_a_community_market as they do still have a few spots here and there for the right thing. They also encourage residents from across Leeds to pop along and spend a Sunday perusing the very best bakers, makers and independent businesses Leeds has to offer.
