Hugely popular over the last couple of years, the markets, which take place on the first Sunday of every month from May to September, offer a wide selection of stalls featuring a range of items including, handmade jewellery, tasty treats, prints of local landmarks and handcrafted decorations for the home.
Stall-holders include Hadrian’s, who make Neapolitan-style pizza in a traditional wood-fired oven, the Northumberland Sausage Company, Chique Unique who offer a selection of womenswear and The Soap Salon with their range of handmade soaps, shower gels and creams.
After browsing at your leisure why not take a stroll along the banks of the Tyne and watch the boats, before stopping for a bite to eat at The Customs House.
