Pop-ups arrive on Norwich Market

A dynamic new group of stalls have 'popped up' on Norwich Market giving budding small businesses and traders the opportunity to try their hand at selling in the heart of the city centre.  

The nine new pop-ups aim to bring an extra buzz to the market through inviting traders to set up temporarily and provide shoppers with an ever-changing range of products to explore. 

Available to rent on short term, flexible lets and at low cost, the pop-ups are perfect for people who want to try trading in an established location but without committing to a long-term lease.

Clustered together in a triangular formation of stalls at the top of market, just off Gaol Hill, the nine pop-ups will be brightly branded to mark them out.  

Norwich Global Village Market collective will be the first to take up temporary residency of the pop-up stalls from Tuesday 20 June to 15 July

Featuring the best of locally-based artisans and craftspeople with a global slant, products on offer will include colourful African jewellery, clothing and crafts, Indian pashminas and kaftans, Portuguese and Moroccan pastries, Italian coffee and north African mint tea, east African spices, Spanish leather bags, African print shoes made by Norwich's own Van Dal shoes and much more.

Councillor Roger Ryan, Norwich City Council cabinet member with responsibility for Norwich Market said: "The new pop-up stalls will create an added vibrancy to our wonderful market, attracting new customers as well as supporting local enterprise.

“I’m certainly looking forward to visiting our first pop-up residents, Norwich Global Market Village and urge everyone to do the same and support this fantastic new initiative.”Sophie Bremner from Norwich Global Market Village said: "We are delighted to be the first residents of Norwich Market's new pop-up area! We love the vibrancy of this historic market and the fact that there are so many great independent traders. All our traders are local to Norwich and are so excited to meet the residents of our fine city." For further details about Norwich Market pop-ups and information about Global Market Village collective visit: www.norwich.gov.uk/popup
