The city council is offering one local small business the chance to win a pop-up stall on its award-winning Norwich Market in the run-up to Christmas.
A number of the city’s independent businesses, which are now based in shops or permanent market stalls, have started life on the market and a pop-up stall is the perfect way to try out trading in the centre of Norwich.
The winning business, which must be based in Norwich and must offer something different to what is already on the market, will be able to trade on the stall for one week at the end of November/start of December.
Councillor Matthew Packer, cabinet member responsible for markets, said: “Norwich Market is a vibrant and exciting place to trade in the heart of the city centre, attracting a wide range of customers. We’d like to give a local business looking to move into a physical shop or permanent stall the opportunity to come and try out all the market has to offer.”
Norwich Market does not let pop-up stalls to food businesses, because of the equipment needed, so food businesses need not apply as they will not be eligible to win.
Applicants are invited to send the city council a short video (no longer than 90 seconds), explaining what their business can bring that is different to Norwich Market. Videos should be sent via WeTransfer to
The closing date for entries is 5pm on Friday, 29 October. Entries will be judged by a panel and the winner will be notified by Friday, 12 November.
