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.

  • Explore the latest urban art gems

    Norwich is already home to eight eye catching large-scale street murals and now the Norwich Business Improvement District (BID) has unveiled its latest urban artworks.

    Working in partnership with Norwich Market, 12 market stalls have been transformed into vibrant street art for residents, visitors and market vendors to enjoy. 

    This collaborative project engaged with five community groups including Notre Dame School, Free School Norwich, The Norwich School, Open Youth Trust and Norwich Theatre Royal to help transform the market.  Ideas were brought to life by seven artists (Kieran Harper, Amy Fellows, Lucie Knight, Emma Hulett, Katie Nice & Maisie Moffat, Ralph McCarthy and Joey LaMeche) who ran workshops with each of the groups to understand their artistic briefs.

  • 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.
