Further selling opportunities for local artists and makers
Norwich Market pop up stalls
The pop-up stall is one you can rent on a temporary, short-term basis. Norwich Market has one market stall designated as a pop-up. The stall is ideal for a collective or group looking to rent a small stall for a themed event – for example an arts and crafts sale, photography and art sales, homewares or antiques. It is also suitable for small innovative producers who do not require a permanent premises but whose business would benefit from a location to make retail sales on an occasional basis.
A flexible space for hire on Wensum Street. The studio has been used for photography shoots, pop-up shops, exhibitions creative writing workshops, rehearsals and conferences.
