Grainger Market offers almost twenty food stalls with various options, all under one roof. Fancy mac and cheese, then Greek food, then fried chicken? They’re all just steps away!

Whilst I can’t cover every stall in this article (no matter how much I may want to), here’s my best shot of a few.

Redheads Mac and Cheese

Redheads is Newcastle’s first restaurant dedicated to mac and cheese, with a variety of toppings ranging from sticky ribs, to Caprese, to Mexican; if you’re a mac and cheese fan, this is the place to be.

Dumpling & Bun

Dumpling & Bun offers the best gyozas, dumplings, bao buns, miso soup and green teas. You can mix and match your flavours. Some favourites include the whitefish & prawn, chilli beef and pork & cabbage! They also offer free dumpling-making classes to Newcastle students!

Fed’s Fried Chicken

Fed’s offers some of the tastiest fried chicken in Newcastle, including sandwiches, wings and tenders. There’s a spicy presence in this stall, so be prepared to smother your chicken in Nashville Hot, Scotch Bonnet, or other spicy sauces. Portion sizes are large and definitely value for money!

Acropolis Greek Street Food

Acropolis is perfect for those looking for a healthier option (but also not!). Vegan options are available across their gyros, platters and wraps. Most options come in either chicken, grilled vegetables or halloumi. If you’re feeling particularly hungry, try the Dirty Greek,; fried chicken Gyros smothered with Acropolis Signature Sauce, tzatziki and chilli sauce with dirty fries.

Snackwallah is always really busy, but also really worth it! Authentic vegan Indian street food, there isn’t much else to say! The stall offers a curry of the day and Samoas, Chat dishes, and Puris.


Looking for good pizza? Slice offers all the traditional pizza toppings and also some non-traditional. Be prepared, though slices aren’t exactly small!

Coffee & Sandwiches

Grainger Market hosts many coffee shops, cafes and sandwich stalls, all with their own identities. I highly recommend cupcakes (or brownies) from Pet Lamb Patisserie, homemade grub from One 2 One, or sandwiches from Grainger Delicatessen.
