Martin Blackwell, the Norwich BID operations manager, responsible for the market, said: 'The key reason we wanted to do this 'Teen Market' is because at this market we could have the next generation of shopkeepers of the city. I can see a great mix here of products and teams. I don't see why any of these retailers couldn't end up on the high street.'

Hilary Ledger, Young Enterprise manager for Norfolk, said: 'We've got schools from across the city and further trading in this market. It's a great opportunity because it gives the teams the chance to meet the public and see their reactions to the product. Ultimately it's really helpful for employability skills, as it gives them a real insight.'
