Is the Quayside Market on?

The Quayside Market will not reopen as part of June's continued lifting of coronavirus lockdown restrictions and remains cancelled until further notice. No relaunch date has been agreed.

Newcastle City Council has confirmed the weekly Sunday food, produce and craft market will not go ahead, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A council spokesperson said:

“The Quayside Market is very popular and we haven’t taken the decision to close it lightly. However, the Government advises that all individuals, regardless of their age or any underlying health conditions, should where possible avoid gatherings and public spaces.

“While we understand the concerns of businesses at any potential lost opportunity for trade, the market brings many people in close proximity so we believe temporary closure is the sensible option for the health and wellbeing of both traders and the public.

“We are working with Government to support all businesses in Newcastle through this difficult time, with advice and guidance available through our website at www.newcastle.gov.uk/coronavirus.

“We look forward to reopening the Quayside market at the earliest possible opportunity.”

Newcastle Quayside Market has been part of North East culture for as long as anyone can remember. Taking place every Sunday between 9am and 4pm on Newcastle Quayside, the outdoor Quayside Sunday Market features independent traders from all over the region selling handcrafted goods and local products.

Boasting a vibrant and varied showcase of quality goods and produce, you'll find everything from jewellery and accessories, to artwork, ceramics, clothing, toys and handmade crafts from the vendors who attend each week. There's also a number of street artists and buskers to help create the warm, friendly atmosphere that the North East is known for, so you'll be fully immersed in Geordie culture.

If you fancy a bite after perusing the stalls, there are also a number of different food trucks and produce stands where you can grab everything from cakes and sweet treats, homemade conserves, coffee and baked goods to take home. Whether you're looking for locally made gifts, or simply browsing to soak up the atmosphere of the Quayside, the Quayside Market is a great day out for the whole family.

As you peruse, why not admire the stunning views of the River Tyne and its famous bridges? Or, stroll along to the Gateshead side to explore Sage Gateshead and BALTIC Centre For Contemporary Art. You can even wander down to the vibrant creative community of Ouseburn if you have time. Newcastle Quayside Sunday Market is also located next to some of the Quayside's best bars and restaurants should you want to stick around for a drink and a spot of Sunday lunch.

Come rain or shine, the Newcastle Sunday Market is one tradition worth taking part in! Whether you're looking to get into the festive spirit at Christmas, or enjoying the glorious sunshine on a summer's day, the Quayside Market is a fantastic place to visit all year round!

Newcastle Quayside Market has an ever-growing list of stalls, vendors and street food trucks which visit each week. While some are permanent attendees, others rotate on a regular basis. You can find a list of previous favourites and well-known regular vendors below:
