Dig in to a smörgåsbord of street food at a very special pop-up culinary event! Back by popular demand, Junkyard Market will host another highly-anticipated pop-up at the Royal Norfolk Show, showcasing the world’s finest street food.

Inspired by culinary traditions that span the globe, Junkyard Market is a street food and drinks market in the heart of Norwich at St Mary’s Works. The concept – which curates, presents and celebrates the best munchies from South America to Asia and back to East Anglia – has been a smash hit in the city, and we are delighted to bring you a bigger and better gastronomic experience at this year’s show!

From the greasy to the gourmet, the food at Junkyard Market is a must for foodies and street food aficionados. But no Junkyard Market is ever the same! The entire experience is designed to keep you on your toes and introduce you to flavours you have never tried before. The cluster of stalls offers a feeding frenzy where you can chow down to your heart’s delight, while the bar offers a broad range from locally brewed beer on tap and award-winning wines to high-end cocktails using locally sourced ingredients.

“Junkyard Market is a melting pot of different cuisines and cultures, and it offers an extensive selection of street food that caters to everyone’s taste buds!” says event coordinator Olivia Stock. “We’ve worked hard to bring you some of Norfolk’s best traders and a variety of global cuisines.

“We’re bringing even more street food traders than last year and have double the area, which enables us to put in more seats and custom pieces of Junkyard art.”

At Junkyard Market, there will also be a stage where Norfolk musicians will perform live music throughout the day. In the evenings, soak up the electric atmosphere as the DJ pumps out the jams. There will even be exclusive performances from music legends such as Norman Jay MBE!

And what is Olivia’s favourite dish on the menu this year?

“I honestly don’t think I could pick just one favourite!” she says. “This is why I love street food: you can order from an array of different traders and sample lots of delicious, unique food in one go.

“Last year, we were overwhelmed by how many people came to the Junkyard pop-up,” says Olivia. “I love the fact that everyone in Norfolk and beyond comes together for these two days in the summer. It’s a great way to meet new people, network and catch up with some old faces.”

If you’re after great beer, brilliant spirits, fantastic wines and big smiles, come on down to the Adnams Food and Drink Experience.

Founded in Southwold in 1872, Adnams has been fiercely independent for 150 years.

“We are distinctive brewers, distillers, wine merchants, retailers, publicans and hoteliers,” says assistant general manager of tours and events Callum Palmer. “We craft authentic and well-loved beers and spirits, and our commitment to local ingredients sees us champion British hops and local grain growers.”

This year, Adnams will have two bars set up serving a full range of drinks, as well as the Adnams Talks Stage, where you can sample products and learn about food and drink production from members of the team.

Callum says his favourite item on the menu is a pint of Ghost Ship.

“But look out for a couple of exciting collaboration brews we are doing, especially for any IPA fans!

“My favourite part of the Royal Norfolk Show is the atmosphere – seeing thousands and thousands of people come together to enjoy and celebrate Norfolk and East Anglian life,” Callum says. “And the food is pretty spectacular!

“Come along and sample some of the wonderful local producers we have in East Anglia – it’s the only place to be.”

Established during the Covid-19 pandemic, The Coffee Club Norfolk is a horsebox coffee business.

At this year’s show, the horsebox will be left at home and a dazzling gazebo decorated with flowers will be percolating fresh and aromatic coffee. Owner Kate Wright says she has “poured a lot of love” into the business.

“We appreciate good-quality coffee,” she says. “The beans we use are from single origin and roasted in small batches to order within Norfolk. Using high-quality beans is really important to us, as well as knowing the farms they come from!”

The business is eco-conscious, and plastic will be kept to a minimum with biodegradable or compostable cups. There will also be a selection of sweet and savouries to tempt you.

“Our Dirty Chai Latte has to be one of my favourites, along with a slice of Biscoff Rocky Road,” Kate says. “We charge between £3 and £4 for a coffee – depending on how fancy you’d like it!”
