Shopping in Newcastle - discover a wealth of characters, services and goods

Whether you're shopping for everyday items or something a little harder to find, the Grainger Market is filled with an exciting variety of opportunities.

Craig Finnigan created Geordie Gifts to celebrate Newcastle. His passion for its football club, heritage and people radiates from hand drawn and printed works of art.

From headphones to hair clippers, clocks to kettles, Michael Grant and his iconic stall, The Shaver Centre, has stood proudly in Alley 1 for decades. He's served generations of Geordies with a multitude of household necessities at modest prices.

Louise spends her days carefully combing handpicked and kiln-dried sunflowers, ruby-red roses and pearlescent white Lunaria at Feel Pretty. She has become the go-to stall for people shopping for their big day or a bit of home decor inspiration.

When you’re done shopping – how about indulging in a bit of me time at Grainger Barbers or Dunn’s Hairdressers where you can get a fresh trim and fresh conversation. 

There's a simple reason Habiknit is one of the most popular fabric shops in Newcastle. It's known for its affordable variety of textures, yarns and haberdashery products. Bargain hunters take note - fabrics sold in high-priced retailers can be found here at a friendlier price. 

The Grainger Market shops are home to masters of their craft 

Julie raises her sewing needle through the last patch of denim for a pair of beloved jeans for a regular. Last year, she was running her needle through Team GB’s Commonwealth Games official kit – hand-picked by organisers for her masterful sewing skills. 

Marc arrives early to Analog to sift through vintage Carhartt that has travelled from Denver and folds 90s Tommy Hilfiger pieces fresh from Bangkok. It’s this dedication to travelling to corners of the globe to handpick rare items, that means Analog has become one of the best vintage shops in Newcastle. 

Paul was fresh out of college when he was handpicked to become an apprentice goldsmith at a renowned Teesside jeweller. 40 years later, Paul is the proud co-owner of Amblergem – one of the city’s few jewellers that offer on-site repairs and alterations where customers can watch Paul work among flying sparks and glowing metal.

Adam and Jenn bonded over their love for subculture and vintage clothing when working together at the Grainger Market five years ago. Nowadays, Tender Hooligan is the City's beacon for subculture brands such as Fred Perry, Dr. Martens and vintage Levi’s, with people travelling far and wide to visit their permanent unit in Alley 4.

Our traders pride themselves on providing communities with high-quality, affordable products.

The Grainger Market is home to local heroes and household names whose businesses span generations. 

The resplendent cherry red and golden period signage of Marks & Spencer Original Penny Bazaar is still as proud today as it was when it first opened in 1895. Customers are still able to purchase quality items at vastly reduced prices – just like their parents and grandparents before them. 

Nick Robinson was just a kid when he first visited his family’s pet store in Newcastle city centre. 50 years later, Nick is the third-generation Robinson keeping Britain’s oldest family pet store alive.
