Spring brings new stalls to Norwich Market

A flurry of new stalls have opened their shutters for the first time on Norwich Market this week. 

Since the beginning of April, four new businesses have joined the 150 plus community of stall holders at the iconic Norwich landmark, bringing the total number of new arrivals in the last six months up to ten.

Adding to the increasingly cosmopolitan feel of the market, two of this week's new arrivals celebrate world cuisine: Sicily Market, offering Sicilian street food, and Mama Baba Hawker with an ever-changing selection of Singapore and Malaysian influenced curries and pies.

Local social enterprise, The Feed, have joined the market as well, giving customers the double satisfaction of knowing their purchase of a deli-style sandwich is also supporting disadvantaged people in Norwich. Nadia’s Henna Happiness Studio is another new arrival this April offering beautiful henna tattoos and more. 

Increasingly many of the new market stalls are providing an eating area for customers, such as Falafel and Friends and Puff and Bean so customers can enjoy their halloumi, pickled vegetable and falafel wraps, or tea and homemade cake, in comfort. Long term market resident Lucy's Chips is also following the trend to expand and offer an eating area too.

Councillor Roger Ryan, Norwich City Council cabinet member with responsibility for Norwich Market said:"We work very closely with the Norwich Market Traders Association to ensure the market continues to thrive, which includes encouraging a broad, interesting mix of goods and services; the arrival of ten fantastic new stalls is evidence that we are succeeding.There really is no better time to open a stall on Norwich Market, so if you want to set up shop in an established location in an iconic settling, please do get in touch."

Sicily Market - Row A, stall 34
The Feed - Row A, stall 24/25

  • River Wensum at Night

    Last month we looked at some of the photographic possibilities along the river Wensum in Norwich between Carrow Road and Fye Bridge Street during daylight hours. This time we will retrace our route by night and look for fresh possibilities.

    We start down by the river near to the football stadium at Carrow Road. Similarly to during the day we can make the most of reflections in the water. At night, these reflections can sometimes be even clearer to see. Night photography is slightly more difficult than during the day due to the low light levels. So, you need to make sure that you have a tripod to mount your camera on. If not, you won't be able to hold the camera steady enough to get a good photo. As always, keep the ISO low (100-200). The aperture (if you can choose it yourself) would be around f/5.6-f/11 depending on the scene. As with landscape photography you want a small aperture to keep most of the scene sharp. However, you may need to open it up a little to allow more light in.
