What’s available at the International Market?

Visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the fabulous flavours of the continent, and to shop the unique arts and crafts of the world.

As the cold autumn weather creeps in why not take advantage of the fabulous fresh hot street foods on offer. You’ll be spoilt for choice as you walk through the market, take your pick from French, Spanish, German, Italian, Greek, Moroccan, and from a little further afield Indian, Lithuanian and Thai foods…good luck choosing!

Don’t forget to leave a little room though for all the sweet treats like freshly-made delicious French crepes and savoury Galettes made on demand for all our customers.

Jimmy Beans will be offering what an exciting array of Fair Trade flavoured coffee beans and his large selection of different and exotic loose-leaf teas.

Christmas is coming up soon so why not get loved ones something a little different from one of the arts, crafts and jewellery stalls.

Not only will there be beautiful Italian silk scarves and handmade metal sculptures, there will also be Amber jewellery which is made in the Baltic Sea in Poland.

What are the opening and closing times?

The market is open from 9am until 6pm Thursday to Saturday and 10am to 5pm Sunday.

Cllr Rob Walker – Cabinet Member for Culture and Environment said:

“Its great news that Market Place have once again chosen Huddersfield to host their International Market. Delivering events like these help to make our town centres more vibrant and boosts the local economy. They help bring diversity to the town and attracts shoppers from miles around. I’d encourage anyone who wants to try something different and enjoy goods that are not usually found in the shops to visit us and see what’s on offer.”


  • I bought some sweets from a stall and asked where he was from and he said Poland and he did speak with an accent, so not all English Barbara Rishforth.

  • barbara rishforth

    when I had a student from Germany he asked me to take him to the International market. None of the people who said they were from Germany were from there. All english. Just a glorified open air market and taking business away from the usual traders in Hudds.
