Weigh House, Grainger Market


The Weigh House is accessed on Alley One and Two of the Grainger Market. "Weigh Houses were once a feature of many markets up and down the country, it was originally used by traders to weigh their deliveries.  When the Market was first built, the Weigh House was on the opposite side of Alley One, but now its one of the few units within the Market which have entrances on more than one alleyway. Today the Weigh House is a hub inside the Market and has many uses.  It is staffed by Newcastle City Council." (Grainger Market Traders' Association). You can even get yourself weighed and receive a little ticket with your weight on!!.
