New signs on the street and a new presence online are set to boost the profile of Norwich Market this summer.
Norwich City Council has launched the two projects to improve awareness of the wide range of goods and services available and to draw more shoppers into the market’s fantastic selection of stalls.
“Our aim is to help increase the number of people using the market by providing better information about what is on offer.”
“The market is a well-loved city institution with a proud history and we really hope these two new projects will give it a boost and be well-received.”
“People are really missing out if they don’t visit the market, there are so many interesting stalls there with lovely local produce, great service and real character.”
The first project has seen the market’s web pages on the city council’s main website given a complete revamp with far more detailed information available.
Stalls have been divided into colour-coded categories according to what they trade and these colours are reflected on a new interactive market map.
Additionally a new list-format page featuring all the new stall information has been produced to ensure smart phone users can access the new information easily.
It means stalls can be much more easily located, people can see what they sell, when they are open and access contact details as well as search for a business by its trading name.
The second project is new signage on two attractive bronze plinths on the main pedestrianised walk alongside the market. The bright newly-designed signs feature a full list of stalls and the new colour-coded map to help passers-by find what they are looking for.
