Grainger Market


Classic and contemporary all under one roof.

Located in the heart of Newcastle, the Grainger Market has been an important part of the city’s shopping experience for almost two centuries. This Grade I Listed market retains much of the stunning light and airy architecture designed by John Dobson as part of the architect, Richard Grainger’s redevelopment of the city in the 1830s. Grainger was said to “have found Newcastle of bricks and timber and left it in stone, stone that still stands today”.

The Grainger Market opened in 1835 and is one of the few market halls that remain in use for its original purpose.

Originally a food market concentrating on fresh meat, fruit and vegetables, the four main alleyways were initially occupied entirely by butchers. The modern Grainger Market enjoys a light, bright, vibrant and buzzing atmosphere, alongside craft stalls, mini bazaars, jewellers and florists, you can find high quality butchers, artisan bakers, green grocers as well as street food traders, coffee shops and cafés, something for everyone to enjoy. Hidden within is the unique ‘Marks and Spencer Original Penny Bazaar’, the world's smallest Marks and Spencer store.

On Saturdays there are art and craft, vintage and specialist art markets held inside the event space. So if you’re foodie or fashion conscious, a browser or a buyer the Grainger Market offers fresh and local, eats and seats, history and culture Monday to Saturday.
