Grainger Market covered 19th-century vegetable market, located in Newcastle, England. The Grade I listed market was constructed as part of the redevelopment of the city to replace markets on the site of Grey Street. Originally had a meat market in one half and a vegetable market in the other.

It was designed by architect John Dobson and named after Richard Grainger who redeveloped much of the city at that time.

Grainger Street, which ends at Grey’s Monument, is one of Newcastle’s most attractive shopping streets. The street and Grainger Town, the area around it, are named after Richard Grainger, who was the architect behind the rebuilding of the city center between 1824 and 1841.
