It is old style market with variety of buying options e.g. fruits, vegetables, meat shops, apparels, tea variety. In plus there are few eatery points as well.

The cafe in the market hall, next to the shoe shop, serves a brilliant full English breakfast. Really nice staff ( but aren't all Geordies nice?) We always go here when visiting Newcastle and always delighted.

We passed through on our way back to our hotel. What an amazing atmosphere and array of colours and smells and sights. I would have loved more time to explore this place, as it seemed like a real hub of Newcastle.

We visit this very time we go to Newcastle. Full of character and unusual things to try or buy. Great food produce ..... often end up taking far more back home than I can easily carry !

Good choice of shops & resturants just a short walk from Gray's monument.The market is brilliant to wander around undercover if raining,plenty of stalls to try different cuisines & cultures,lovely little coffee shops to watch the world go by.Just don't get lost going up &I down the aisles...otherwise you come out on a different street to what you went in...
