Shoppers are going to be on cloud nine after a raft of new pop-up stalls opened on Norwich Market.
Selling everything from food to fabrics, and glassware to gourmet ingredients, the nine new pop-up stalls will be on the historic market for a month - before being swapped for a whole new range.
The cluster of market stalls have been brought back to life by Norwich City Council and Norwich Global Market.
The stalls have their own branding that helps them to stand out and show the vibrancy in the products on offer from the pop-ups. These new stalls are to be quirky, fun and vibrant, showing Norwich how much the market stands out and sets the city apart,
The nine stalls are located towards the back of the market and rows F and G at the Gaol Hill end of the market. The pop-ups allow small businesses and traders the opportunity to try their hand at selling in the heart of the city.
Roger Ryan, cabinet member responsible for Norwich Market attended the opening of the pop-ups yesterday. He said: 'These pop-ups bring something different to the market, it's giving people the chance to have a go.'
He added: 'The pop-ups are more of a starting stall really, to let them test it out and see if a place on the market is for them.

'We're launching something we hope will go onto bigger and better things. It's called the global market because all our products are worldwide, some of our stall holders go out to Africa to get the products.'
'We think it's a fabulous initative. The market is like any other business, and we're adding to it.'
The scheme will see the nine pop-up stalls change each month.
Sophie Bremner runs the Norwich Global Village Market Traders Association, who organised some of the stalls.
She said: 'We're not competing with anyone on the market and we're so diverse. Our stalls have things from Africa, India, France, Portugal and more but they're all made here in Norwich.'
Lalita Kumari runs a collaborative stall with Sita Wilkerson-Roe.
She said: 'The market is a really nice community of people who are influenced all over the world. We carve into the market what's not already here.
'We're here for the month but we could potentially get a permanent stall. We want to be affordable and unique; our products range from £5 to £90.'
