NEWS: Stack Food Village coming to Leeds Outdoor Market

?Leeds Outdoor Market, New York Street, Leeds, LS2 7DF

Ground breaking plans to develop the Outdoor Market to include an outdoor container style ‘Food Village’ have just taken a big step forward.

After 10 months, the Council has announced Stack as its preferred operator. Stack specialises in a mix of street food and drink outlets in repurposed shipping containers as well as events and entertainment.

Check out @stackseaburn on the North East coast in and @stacknewcastle. To win the pitch Stack had to show how they’d complement the Leeds City Markets and generate new custom for existing traders.

The outdoor market has room for 185 stalls, with around 85 of those being filled on its busiest days. The plan is to reduce outdoor pitches and free up space for the new container village. Space for both existing traders and the new offer would be secured.

Let us know what you think of this, is it a good thing for Leeds?
