About The Corn ExchangeLeeds Corn Exchange is a Grade 1* listed building and shopping centre based in the heart of Kirkgate, Leeds. Designed by revered British architect Cuthbert Broderick, the Corn Exchange opened its doors to corn traders in 1864. Today, it is a living Leeds landmark and the home of independent retail and food traders in a burgeoning creative neighbourhood. Not just shopkeepers, but creatives, collectors, cooks and craftspeople. Home to a collection of vendors who do things their own way, and a community of customers who prefer the personal touch. Shopping bags full of stories. Eccentricity ingrained into the Victorian stonework.
When we first started our little business, the idea of a shop felt a million miles away. We'd spoken about it at length, but it felt like a pipe dream.
The idea of it being in The Corn Exchange felt even more unrealisitic as it's such an iconic building that we had both fallen in love with when first moving to Leeds as teenagers.
We spent 3 months renovating our unit, from a hairdressers to our beautiful little deli, making sure every detail was how we wanted it.
Shoutout to our good friends, Max & Will, who built all our benches, work tops & back wall (and delt with us getting very stressed!) - we couldn't have done it without you.
Now moving forwards, we want as many people to enjoy this space that we love so much.
