A topping out ceremony for a new indoor market in Sheffield will take place today. Under the plans, almost 200 stalls will occupy the £18m building.
Sheffield City Council hopes that moving Sheffield's main market across the city to The Moor will strengthen retail in this area.
Council chiefs in Leeds will meet later to consider a £12.3m investment for Europe's biggest indoor market. They want to improve the interior and exterior of Kirkgate market.
An international food festival begins today in Leeds.
The Global Food Market is being held at Leeds Kirkgate Market for the next three months. Cuisine from six different cultures will be on offer - South African, Chinese, Russian, Australian, Canadian and Dutch.
The first event explores South African food (16-19 May) with tastings and demonstrations. An authentic zulu dance group will also be performing throughout the market halls.
