Step out of the Metro at Tynemouth on any Saturday or Sunday, and you will find yourself in the midst of one of the busiest flea markets on Tyneside. Set in the partially restored splendor of Tynemouth's Victorian railway station, this covered market is a joy for those who seek second-hand bargains. Here you will find books, videos, records, CDs, clothes, paintings and prints, furniture, craft objects, flowers, homemade confectionery, and more. Remember to haggle for the best price and come early for some serious bargains. There is a farmers' market on the third Saturday of every month, as well as book fairs on occasional Sundays.
