Exploring Newcastle's Quayside Market

Saturday, 27 May 2017

Every Sunday from 9-4 local vendors flock to the river banks of the Quayside, from the swing bridge to the Gateshead Mtxillennium bridge, to sell their wares. It’s so important to support local businesses in your area. They make it super easy too with their selections of amazing handmade jewellery, beautiful paintings and delicious home cooked food.

Luckily I live only a 10 minute walk away which means I visit the market almost every weekend.

A perfect Sunday for me is taking a long stroll down to the Quayside and taking part in my own personal food crawl. I usually wake up early enough and go to a body pump and abs class too so I definitely don’t feel guilty for the 80374037 I usually consume.

I always make sure I go to the market hungry, to try all the new foodie stalls. Sometimes I barely make it to the end of the stalls before I’m stuffed.

A trip to the market isn't complete without a trip to the Geordie Banger sausages stall. If you haven’t already tried them I highly recommend doing so. They’ve also just created ‘the best sausage ever’ by collaborating with Wylam Brewery to create these babies below. You can pick up 3 packs of Geordie Bangers for £10.

If you fancy a more traditional Sunday lunch then The Broad Chare has you covered!

If it’s a nice day we like to walk along the Quayside past Pitcher & Piano towards the Tyne Bar for a cheeky afternoon bevvy or 2 or 3 or 4…

Newcastle really is a beautiful city with so much to offer.

What’s your favourite way to support local businesses in your area?

  1. When I was living in London and only coming up to Newcastle to visit Simon at weekends I was completely obsessed with the Quayside Market. I'd insist on going every time I visited. Now that I live here we hardly ever go! My dream is to one day go and eat my way down the whole Quayside ... I really must do it this Summer!
