The Life of Pie

Leeds market is one of the largest indoor markets in Europe, originally built in 1875, the market has survived direct bombings in world war II and a devastating fire in 1975 which damaged most of the roof causing £7 million worth of damage.

While walking around the market one day I noticed that there was so much human contact here. I realised why people love to visit the market, there’s no faceless self-checkouts, the market is a meeting place, a hub, a hive of activity, it’s a mini city within a city, it’s a place of ethnic diversity, take a walk around and you’ll hear languages from all around the globe, a place where people interact, a place where people communicate.
