We love visiting markets

 

And we’ve started keeping a blog about the different markets we visiting.  You can find the blogs on our tumblr profile: vjwjewellery.tumblr.com.   We’ll add to the blog everyday we visit a market somewhere, so keep checking back for the latest updates from us!

 

And if you’ve got a tip for somewhere we should visit, send us an e-mail to karl.wilson@vjwjewellery.co.uk

Delft Market

There’s been a Weigh House inside the Grainger Market ever since the Market first opened.

The original Weigh House was located on Alley 1, and the current Weigh House is in a different position, straddling Alley 1 & Alley 2.

It’s purpose was to enable shoppers to check the weight of their fish, meat and fresh produce.

Nowadays you can get yourself weighed for 30p and find out what’s happening in and around parts of Newcastle from the information boards.  There’s also a replica of a painting by Henry Parker, depicting the banquet which commemorated the opening of the Grainger Market in 1835.

Please note the Weigh House is run by the City Council.  It also operates different hours to the Grainger Market itself, opening 8.30am til 4.30pm, Monday to Saturday.
