As each day goes by, have you noticed that the world gets a little more chaotic? But the sun keeps on rising, winter is slowly yet surely turning into spring, and markets in Newcastle are doing wonders to keep us all a little bit calm in the midst of chaos.

Reliable regularity and a sense of community is really what it’s all about, and this Saturday at the Station in Newcastle, Homegrown is back with the goods. But before we get into the top stalls you should absolutely check out this weekend, a reminder to mask up, stay COVID safe, and be kind to one another.

Honeybellecakery

Do we even need to spell out why you should check out Honeybellecakery? Cake, people, everyone (even Shrek) loves cake. These mouth-watering treats are just the ticket for a winter’s day, and a way to reward yourself after running errands.

If you’re looking for an extra excuse, this Saturday marks Honeybellecakery’s Newcastle Market debut! So here’s to treats, glorious treats! 

Growing Creations by Rushi

Fun fact, green is good. Another fact, not all thumbs are green. This is why some of us just aren’t meant to fill our homes with illustrious exotic plants that we know will see the sad side of the green bin in about a week.

But, to loop back, green is good, and thankfully Growing Creations by Rushi are here to help those of us whose thumbs are a little lacklustre. See for yourself this weekend!

Burn Active

Everyone knows that winter is the best time to work out. There’s less sun and heat, which means fewer moments where you feel like a gross sweaty mess. Given the current climate as well, exercising gives us a get-out-of-the-house-free card.

Exercising has become the excuse to leave the house, not something we avoid anymore, which is why you should treat yourself to some awesome new activewear from Frianki Burn Active. Exercising is a #vibe for everyone now, not just for the 5am crew.

Fancy Nancy Ceramics

What’s the first thing you notice when you go to someone’s house for a cuppa? The kind of coffee? That little bit too eccentric art print on the wall? No. It’s the mug you’ll be huggin’ and sippin’ on, as you spill the tea.

You’ve got the shelf space, and the hankering to support local, so why not add to, or complete your collection this weekend thanks to Fancy Nancy Ceramics. Mug envy is very much a real thing.
