Grainger Market


Grainger Market is a busy, vibrant market which still plays a role in  Newcastle’s bustling shopping and dining culture, nearly 200 years after it first opened. The covered market is situated in the centre of Newcastle, a stone's throw away from Grey Street and the city’s iconic Grey’s Monument.

Home to hundreds of local traders and small businesses, Grainger Market boasts everything from cobblers, florists, and jewellers to haberdasheries, artisan bakeries, high-quality butchers and greengrocers. Visitors to Grainger Market can pick up fresh fish, meat, fruit and veg, while browsing the mini bazaars, as well as indulging in a slice of fresh, stonebaked pizza or handmade cakes at one of the many independent cafes - a hit with local foodies!

Wander the rows of stalls to discover vintage boutiques, craft stalls and fun souvenir shops like Geordie Gifts as well as pet stores, hardware counters and much more. Favourites amongst the residents in Grainger Market are French Oven, an independent artisan bakery which sell fresh, locally produced breads, scones and pasties and Pet Lamb Patisserie, who serve up homemade cakes and bakes to satisfy any sweet tooth.

Grainger Market is not only a great shopping experience but its lively atmosphere and striking architecture make it a must-visit attraction in the city

Well ingrained in Newcastle’s history and heritage, the Grainger Market is actually a Grade I Listed Market, which retains much of the stunning light and airy architecture that was designed by John Dobson.  Constructed as part of the cities redevelopment by architect Richard Grainger in the 1830s, Grainger Market first opened in 1835 and is one of the few market halls in the UK that remain in use for its original purpose. Known for its unique hidden treasures, Grainger Market is also home to ‘Marks and Spencer Original Penny Bazaar’, the world's smallest Marks and Spencer store, and Nan Bei, one of the best Chinese dumpling stalls you'll find up North!

Keep an eye out for events taking place in Grainger Market throughout the year including their popular, annual Christmas Night Market, live music and craft workshops as well as tours and talks during Heritage Open Days. You're sure to have a great day out!
