Good Morning Everyone,

This is Norwich's open air market.
You access it from the far end of the Royal Arcade.

The outdoor market consists of around 200 stalls and is in the central part of Norwich. It was founded in the latter part of the 11th century to supply Norman merchants and settlers moving to the area following the Norman conquest of England.

As one of the largest and oldest open-air markets in the country, its rich heritage and traditional appearance was really pleasing

There were stalls with a fantastic range of goods and services; clothes, children’s toys, jewellery, household goods, flowers, keys cut or shoes mended, the market has it all!

Stalls also sold a delicious range of quality local food including meat and fish, freshly baked bread, jam, chutneys plus a wide range of cheeses, as well as hot, cooked meals. Many students seemed to be buying their lunch, when we were there, and then moving to the library steps to consume their meal!

To make the market safe during the pandemic a one way system had been installed and people were requested to wear face masks, though as in any country, not everyone obeyed the rule!

I have shown this view first as it just shows how 'outdoor" the market is, surrounding the city trees!

I will show two other views, one revealing the market as one emerges from the arcade and another looking down on the triangular-shaped roofs.

Have a good day, Bev :-)
