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.
Norwich Market has won the Best Independent Food and Drink Award at the prestigious EDP Norfolk Food and Drink Awards 2017, which took place at Norwich Open last night (September 11). The annual awards, run in association with East of England Co-op, celebrate everything from great chefs to fabulous produce, pubs and restaurants. Sweet treats specialist, Figbar, which has a stall on Norwich Market, won the award for best newcomer.
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.
