Secret Norfolk by Nicole Ranaweera
Make sure you take a break from the Christmas shopping to enjoy a feast at Norwich Market this December!
There’s been a recent food revolution on the Market, upping the foodie game with new feast stalls appearing all the time. And, with a selection of cuisines that range from European to Asian it really is no surprise that Norwich Market has recently won the EDP Best Independent Food & Drink Award and was named one of Culture Trip’s 10 best markets in England. Finding foodie treats from most corners of the globe is quite frankly the best way to explore the hidden treasures of the market, and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
