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.
