Sourced Market

Provenance redefined for motorway services


Elevated Service Station Experience

Set beside a natural lake and wildlife reserve, Leeds Skelton Lakes Services is a next generation retail and wellbeing hub underpinned by strong environmental goals. With this being Sourced Market's first venture outside of London, we wanted to create a game-changing food marketplace that flips service station conventions on their heads.

The Concept

Power to the people

This aspirational food environment is welcoming, honest and impactful with stories of provenance at every turn. It brings locally sourced artisan producers together under one-roof with eat in and take-out options. The offer includes retail, food-on-the-move, coffee and bakery, as well as speciality retail from craft beer, wine and cheeses. 

The Details

Conscious Warmth

The space features beautiful hand-crafted oak timber canopy frames, standing amongst a backdrop of deep blue. A powerful concrete central island creates a go-to hub for service, designed to enable an intuitive customer journey. For coffee on the go or anything you want at speed, the convenience offer greets you at the entrance, popping out from the front of the demise where you may also find a coffee van selling beautiful coffee from Origin Roastery. Guests with more time are rewarded as they venture within, with offers from a specialist suppliers bar, rotisserie and deli. What look like terrazzo table tops are actually made from locally recycled plastic, just one small hint at the conscious thought behind the environment’s material palette.

“The concept title for the design was ‘Power to the People’; a celebration of everything Sourced Market; putting local small-scale suppliers front and central, and giving hosts and guests freedom and trust."
