With Wimbledon set to get underway on Monday 3 July, people across the country will be glued to their televisions to see whether Andy Murray in particular can retain his male singles title – and with Wimbledon comes tennis-fever. For this, there’s no better place to get prepared than Leicester Market.

Nothing is more synonymous with Wimbledon than the classic mix of strawberries and cream – and both can be purchased fresh from the Market, with locally grown strawberries available from a range of fruit and veg traders within the outdoor market. Meanwhile, shoppers can head into the award-winning Food Hall to pick up local cream to pour over them.

Leicester Market is open Monday to Saturday, trading from 7am to 6pm (outdoor) and 9am to 5pm (Food Hall). For more information, please visit
