The street food scene in Newcastle and Gateshead is thriving.

With an abundance of street food vendors and several street food events taking place throughout the year, visitors are never short of ways to sample the very best in fresh and flavour-filled cuisine that is quick and convenient for experiencing Newcastle on the go. Start off by taking a wander through Grainger Market in the city centre to discover a number of independent kiosks and a mouth-watering variety of choices from imaginative mac n cheese, to Greek kyros, some of the juiciest burgers to fresh pizza by the slice. 

The Hawker Market at By The River Brew Co. nestled under the Tyne Bridge on Gateshead Quayside is THE place for street food in Newcastle. Serving up a world of flavours, the urban hotspot is home to independent vendors who are well known across the region from the likes of Lola Jean, Dabbawal and Chucos Tacos. The spring and summer street food haven is fast becoming the go-to location for chilled out dining as a result of its prime position beside the River Tyne and top-notch beer selection.
