    Best Sunday morning.
    I love this Sunday morning. The roads are pedestrianised so it’s easy to wander. The stalls are varied and all the vendors are friendly. I find it impossible not to buy something. The food area is amazing - would definitely recommend the Cheese Grill place and the Acropolis GreekStreet Food. For a large, good priced, lovely coffee, go to the little coffee shop at the end under the bridge. I would go here every Sunday if I could.

    Sunday Market
    Came across this by chance during a walk along the quayside in December. There was a mix of stalls from artisan makers to your usual generic market stalls. I bought some honeycomb which I thought was reasonably priced since its usually expensive in the shops.

    Happening street food vibe.
    We are locals and have not been to the market for some time so the changes came as surprise to us. Gone are most of the artisan craft stalls and ( thankfully) tacky ‘stuff’ stalls. This venue is now largely a lively and happening street food venue with a great vibe. It could be a disappointment for visitors new to the area who were expecting a craft and artisan type venue. Local council need to update website.

    Spoiled for choice with good food
    Throughout our whole weekend in Newcastle, we were blown away by the amazing food and this market was no exception. After a lot of wandering up and down trying to choose between the many great options, I got a jerk chicken wrap from Divine Caribbean. The flavour was great and it was a sizeable portion, but I ordered the wrap naively thinking it would be easy to eat in one hand as we walked, but there was no wrapping or structure going on making it very difficult to easy gracefully. However, it was worth the mess. My wife had the original mac n cheese from Redheads (after already having it at their Grainger Market stall the day before), which was incredible and certainly the best we’ve ever had. Our toddler even had his own plate of chicken and rice from the Copper Ricebox which he loved. Further along from the main food stalls, we also grabbed a boba tea and a white chocolate cheesecake from other stalls that were lovely too.

Does anyone have the contact information for ‘the best souvlaki in toon’ van at the market? I bought 1 chicken gyros on the 5/11/23 at 14:45 by card. They charged me £19 for the 1 instead of 9.50 I could not see high enough to be able to see the card machine therefore I missed the over charge. I’m really not happy and would like to sort this out if anyone has the details. Thanks

We came to the market on Mother’s Day, we had a nice wander and bought some brownies. Lunch was had in the hawker market over the swing bridge. Always worth a mooch. Lots of food vans near the swing bridge. Lots of artisans on the way along the river bank.

Newcastle Quayside Sunday Market

Stalls-a-plenty selling a range of items from caps, candles, jewellery, cleaning products, sweaters, handbags, casual shoes and scarves to bread, fudge, sweets and even LP records, it seems that Newcastle Quayside has something for all; though there wasn’t a sign of Christmas to be found anywhere; no gift wrap or cards, nothing and whilst I know it’s been many years since I’ve visited the Quayside Market I saw none of the usual stalls selling towels, bedding, pots-and-pans, etc. Time was you could get all of your small household items here but, no more.

Personally I found most of the items on offer pretty standard fare; with the exception of one stall which sold several pictures - one in particular I was interested in was a snow covered picture of the Angel of the North which I know my sis would love; but, other than that it seems that Newcastle Quayside has become just another food venue.

Fish and Chips, donuts, burgers, German sausages, hot dogs, burgers, nachos and pork sandwiches to name but a few stalls, I found it quite sad that what was once a well known, bustling Sunday Market has become just another place to browse whilst buying food and taking in the real sights of the Quayside.

Having said that, with the Millennium Bridge being a sight of its own and the Baltic Mill an Art Centre, not to mention the renowned Sage Gateshead just a short walk across the Tyne there is no doubt that with or without the food stalls, The Quayside Market will continue for some time yet.

I must say how surprised I was when I visited the market this weekend after not being for years. There are lots of really good quality stalls ranging from food, local artists, homewares and lovely fashion and bags. The atmosphere is great with strolling along on a sunday morning with salsa music playing and plenty of pubs to call in on the way have a morning coffee or a traditional sunday lunch.

The quayside itself is a great location and now that the market has been rejuvenated it is a great family day out. You can spend hours browsing the stalls, which sell a fantastic mix of locally produced goods, and once you've finished you can take a walk along the quayside or stop off for a coffee or a bite to eat at one of the many bars and restaurants.

I love this place. Perfect Sunday in the sun, walking along the quayside. Visiting The Sage, Millenium Bridge, The Baltic and strolling through the market. What more do you need!
Great atmosphere. There has been a huge improvement in quality over the years in the stalls. Great mixture of local food, crafts, jewellery and pretty well everything. Totally unique and recommended.
Well worth a visit. Suitable for all ages. Free parking is nearly non existent. Paid parking is expensive, so be warned. No toilets, except at Baltic, local pub and restaurants. 10 min walk into town, a steep walk, but enjoyable.

The market is right on the newcastle quay side. there are shops for art stuff, food, clothing, etc. Its open from morning till late noon. Though its not a huge market, its well worth a visit due to its location and things to offer for everyone. Some very good food trucks as well.

This used to be a tat market but now it sells lovely handmade crafts, great food and is full of friendly vendors, a wonderful place to spend a sunny Sunday morning and spend a little money on some 'nice bits'. A really nice place to go and always fun to walk along the river too!
