In support of the Eastern Daily Press’ and the Evening News’ “Get Behind Your Norwich Market” campaign, you can also read this blog post in the local papers today.
I adore the market and when we lived in the city centre earlier this year it was my second home; I’d pop in every morning whilst Evelyn slept in the sling, it was one of the most enjoyable daily rituals I’ve had to date: A chat to the stall holders, a graze on some hot vegan food from Bia Kitchen and a good coffee whilst little one slept.

The rest of the market is equally as tempting, offering a wide selection of goodies including (probably) the county’s widest selection of locally-made and European cheeses not to mention the best fish and chips…
