The Staiths Food Market


The Staiths Food Market is held on the 2nd Saturday of each month between May and September, 11am - 3pm.

Staged on the river tyne at the Dunston Staiths, one of Europe's largest wooden structures, this monthly food market has an enviable location, a mere 15 minutes walk from Newcastle’s bustling Quayside on the well known Keelman’s Way cycle route, and provides visitors with a tranquil setting and wonderful river views whilst they browse the delicious local produce. Market goers can also make the most of their trip by taking the chance to explore the Staiths - an important part of Gateshead’s cultural history and the adjoining Saltmarsh Gardens. It’s a great day out for the family with something that everyone can enjoy.

Whether it’s satisfying savoury you’re after or a sweet treat, The Staiths Food Market has something for you. And better still it’s all locally sourced. Food lovers should prepare to be wowed by delicious new food producers and street food stalls including gourmet grilled cheese, Caribbean BBQ, craft beers, loaded fries & artisan cheesecake plus all of last year’s favourites. Choose from hand baked bread, local cheese, organic fruit and veg, ales and spirits, cakes and patisserie, specialist meat and game, free range eggs, sauces and preserves, free-from bakery, freshly brewed coffee and local honey. Once you’ve had your fill of the North East’s best food offerings, sit back and relax and soak up those river views

The market is held on the lower deck of the Dunston Staiths, gates open 11am - 3pm and entry costs just 50p, free for under 14’s.

Getting here

There’s limited parking available near the venue at NE11 9DR although organisers recommend that visitors who are able make the most of the wonderful riverside walk - by foot or by cycle.

The closest bus stop is Team Street which is serviced by 6/45/46/47 buses from Newcastle - Eldon Square or Central Station or the x66 from Gateshead Interchange.
