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.”
