Big market
May 2021
Norwich's extensive open air market, with its stalls under striped awnings, is right next to the Guildhall and in front of the City Hall. It's a place where you can buy almost anything - from knitting yarn to claw hammers to hog roasts - food, hardware, crafts, produce. There is a really impressive number of different stalls. Or just walk around to absorb the market banter.

A proper independent market
Jun 2021 • Couples
So much fun exploring the market at Norwich with my girlfriend, had a lovely time meeting the local people with a terrific range of Shops, and independent food places. Ended up settling with a Chinese stand and paying £5 for a Chicken Chow Mein that fed both us and then some! Great value for money.

Disappointing
May 2021
Norwich was great, but the market was a real disappointment. Lots of stalls where you could get something to eat, but not much else. Unless you are hungry, i would spend your time doing something else around this great city.

Go adventure

This is located next to the City Hall in the heart of Norwich. It is semi-covered with stalls set out in narrow columns. Go explore. There are many small independent traders and some great examples of street goods where the smells create a real fusion to tempt you.

We loved the market.

FAIL - Key cutter tried twice
Apr 2021 • Solo
Got a key cut from the key cutter/shoe repair on the market.

Went back as the key didn't work, and got a new one. Unfortunately that one didn't work either!

Not going to try a third time, I'll just go and get one cut somewhere else.

How could they improve? Would it be reasonable to ask that the key works?!

Waste of time - unless you are looking for something to eat!

Norwich Market

This was our very first visit to Norwich and I must say IT IS CERTAINLY NOT a place for anyone with mobility issues. The place is all steep hills, a lot of cobbled pathways and the majority of the shops have lots of stairs to get into them, and if you do manage to get into them, the aisles are quite narrow! We did not see anyone else with a mobility walker all day - and now we know why!! I myself walk with a walker and will NEVER visit again! It is going to take me a good while to get over the trip!

We came across the market by accident really - firstly seeing all of the pretty coloured rooftops of the stalls, but we thought it was somewhere else I wouldn’t be able to access as it appeared to have lots of steps to get down to it, but then we came across a slope around the other side. I do like a good market, but disappointingly this whole area seemed to be made up of 95% food stalls! The aisles are extremely narrow and with lots of people blocking the walkways either standing around eating or just taking up the small space talking with others, it was difficult for me to get around easily with my walker, and then there were those people who decided to break from their huge Mother’s Meetings and step away without looking to see if anyone else was coming by - bumping into me with my walker!! It was quite a stressful time for me to be honest!
We continued up and down a few of the aisles, but to be honest didn’t find it very interesting as it was mostly food stalls, which is great if you’re a local looking for some lunch. We only came across a handful of other types of stalls - a haberdashery stall, a hoover parts stall, a vintage clothes stall, a book stall, a stall selling handmade leather items, a Greengrocers, a pet stall and a flower/plant stall. I’m sure there were a few other non food stalls, and perhaps a map of the set up would have been GREAT because we were very disappointed a gave up after seeing food stall after food stall after food stall! We actually couldn’t wait to get out of there, especially as a lot of people were not wearing masks - it is practically undercover afterall and quite busy!!
VERY DISAPPOINTING!

Lovely place to explore
Jan 2020 • Friends
First visited Norwich in October 2019 and fell in love with the Market. Went back in January 2020 for another taste. I love the tiny bars and food outlets and meandered around it for a while. So much so i am now considering a move there and open a stall of my own.

Very good market.
Sep 2020 • Couples
This is a very good market and I believe it has recently won awards for being so. The products and produce on sale is pretty much what you would expect of an outdoor market and I thought that the fruit and vegetables on display looked very good and there was also a nice range of fast food outlets.

The market stalls themselves are almost like some sort of beach hut design and, while I’ve no doubt that many will find them attractive, I’m not so keen. The colours are nice and bright, but I found that the solid sides and the close proximity of the stalls to one another restricted overall visibility. I like markets to feel wide and open, with the ability to see several stalls at once, but here it all felt a bit hemmed in.
