Tynemouth markets are housed in the metro station and run every Saturday and Sunday from 9am until 4pm.
We visited for the first time on Sunday and had an absolutely fabulous time. There was a wonderful array of sights, sounds and smells all coming from an eclectic mix of stalls. From the artisan to shop bought, from brand new to secondhand, from international food to confectionary stalls there was definitely something for everyone.
The whole experience was colourful, varied and definitely fun. There were an awful lot of good quality items at mostly reasonable prices to peruse and purchase. I bought some fabric with a repeat flamingo pattern, I’m going to make some cushion covers for my kitchen chairs. I’ll post the results.
Can’t recommend this covered market highly enough. We got the metro from Byker but you can drive in as there seemed to be plenty of car parking spaces around.
We will definitely be back. A word of warning if you see something get it there and then don’t have a think and then go back (as I did) because it will be gone. Disappointed as the bed cover was exactly what I had been looking for – should have bought it when I first saw it!
