Newcastle Quayside Sunday Market

It wasn't raining on Sunday morning! Yippee! So we decided to make the most of the crisp Autumnal day and enjoy a stroll along the Quayside and browse the various market stalls on offer.

The Quayside Sunday market takes place every Sunday on the banks of the river Tyne from 9:30am to 4pm. There is something for everybody from a pumpkin stall to German sausages. From handcrafted jewellery to homemade fudge.

The first stall to catch our eye was a stall selling traditional homemade lemonade. An absolute steal at only 60p per cup. I think this was the first time my children have tasted homemade lemonade. Safe to say they enjoyed it - they couldn't stop licking their lips!

Next we bought a lovely card and handmade toffee teacakes as an anniversary gift for my inlaws. I hope they enjoyed them!

My children really enjoyed looking out into the river and admiring the many bridges that cross the Tyne.

They were especially pleased when they spotted a sweet stall in which they spent their pocket money!

We needed something for dinner that evening and I was immediately drawn to the Geordie Banger Co stall. 

The stall holder was very friendly and happy to advise us on what to buy. We opted for Brown ale, breakfast and hog roast sausages which were all definitely a good choice.

We could not resist a freshly baked loaf of cheddar bread and cheese straws from the artisan bread stall to accompany our sausages. Yum!

We were really impressed with the quayside market. Some traders are there every Sunday, whilst others only trade occasionally meaning that each visit would be different. It is a fantastic place to pick up a unique gift and lovely for a stroll.
