Get 2019 Off To A Healthy Start

It’s January, so with it comes the New Year’s Resolutions of millions across the country – and like most years, top of everybody’s list is to ensure that they’re healthier and fitter.

The key to ensuring that a new healthier lifestyle is maintained is to ensure it is sustainable. When it comes to healthier eating, one thing is guaranteed – shopping at Leicester Market will give you the best chance of succeeding with a huge range of fresh, local produce.

And the best part is that the prices knock the socks off any prices on offer in supermarkets.


Let’s be honest, Christmas is a time for indulgence and sweet things can often be at the top of the list of things you go over the top with; mince pies, Christmas pudding, selection boxes. None of which are great for your health.

Switch up your sugary snacks for delicious fresh fruit. At Leicester Market, you can pick up your staples of apples, oranges, bananas, peaches, plums etc. However, you can also pick up more exotic fruits from around the globe. Fresh pineapples, mangos, passion fruit and pomegranates are just a few of the amazing fruits available from the outdoor traders at Leicester Market.

Going healthy doesn’t mean you have to compromise on taste!


If, like many, you’ve basically transformed into 90% cheese following too much over Christmas, an intake of vegetables is a great way to allow your body to detox and gain nutrients it needs. As with fruit, there is a HUGE range of fresh local vegetables on offer at Leicester Market. From potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and beans to salad essentials like lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes and peppers – Leicester Market has you covered to allow you to stock your fridge with healthy essentials.

Many fruit and vegetable items can be purchased by the bowl (usually £1 per-bowl – where else can you get that?), or separately. Have a chat with our trader and they will be more than happy to help!
