The seven best place to eat in Newcastle’s Grainger Market

Here’s the best places to eat in the Grainger Market, according to NewcastleWorld.

The Grainger Market can be a bit of a maze.

Filled with amazing independent shops, cafes and eateries, it’s hard to know where’s worth your time.

In my opinion, you can get good food in any establishment inside the historic market. But here are the seven places I return to time and time again.

Opened in 1835, the Grade I listed building has been an important part of Newcastle’s identity for nearly 200 years.

Designed by John Dobson, it was named after Richard Grainger who shaped much of the city centre we know and love today by leading the redevelopment of it in the 19th Century.

Today, the market is home to over 100 small businesses and independent traders ranging from food to clothesjewellers and opticians.

The Grainger Market is renowned for its bustling food scene which seems to be growing constantly. 

Every time I visit there seems to be a new addition, the latest being Street Food Sri Lanka, which I can’t wait to try.

After every bit of food, it would be sacrilege to not treat yourself to a coffee and a sweet treat. North Shore is my personal favourite but there are so many other options available too.

So, without further ado, here are my top recommendations in the Grainger Market for a bite to eat.
