From artisan food and handmade gifts to antiques and vintage records, you'll find plenty of treasures on your next shopping trip to our North East markets.
Coronavirus update: Grainger Market in Newcastle city centre remains open from 9am - 4pm with strict social distance measures in place. Outdoor markets like popular NewcastleGateshead Quayside Market and Tynemouth weekend market are still closed but we will keep you updated with further information as it is announced.
If you are missing local markets like Jesmond Food Market which normally takes place on Armstrong Bridge, then check out Local Heroes deliveries. Choose from a delivery box of meat, fresh fish or groceries from local traders and businesses who you might see at an outdoor, weekly market; or why not build your own package? Make your own delivery box of local produce including cheese, jams and chutneys, drinks, chocolate and milk. Wander the virtual Local Heroes market here and sit back to await your hamper.
