We are delighted that at our special lamp-lit evening market in Norwich for the City’s Christmas Lights Switch-on, this Thursday 22 November, we will be raising funds for Norwich Food Bank,  a charity for Norfolk people who find they don’t have enough of the most basic of foodstuffs in times of crisis.

The Forum have generously given us the space free for the evening and we have decided that to kick off the fund raising we will donate that whole rent that we would normally pay to The Norwich Food Bank. We are encouraging the stall holders to make their own donations to The Norwich Food Bank.

We hope that shoppers will also make their contribution to the fundraising for the Food Bank by buying tickets for a Norfolk Diet prize draw to have a chance to win an array of prizes donated by the market and their friends.

Sarah Pettegree, from Bray’s Cottage Pork Pies (and founding team member of The Norfolk Diet) said:

“We are all really looking forward to being part of the city’s Christmas light switch-on evening, which always has such a great family atmosphere, and would love to see as many people as possible coming and buying delicious local food and drink and help to raise funds for a wonderful charity by entering the raffle. The Food Bank is very close to all our hearts, so we are hoping to be able to give them a significant sum of money at the end of the evening”

Food and drink available at the market, on Millennium Plain, outside The Forum between 3pm and 8pm, will include Norfolk produced cakes and patisserie, puddings, savoury foods, hot dogs, chocolate and hot drinks.

Norwich Foodbank supports local individuals and families who find themselves on the edge of disaster through the provision of emergency food supplies. These supplies take the form of nutritionally balanced emergency food-boxes to cover an individual or family’s basic needs for 72 hours: the critical time gap before the Social Services safety net “kicks in.”

Prize Draw Details:

Tickets for the prize draw will be available for purchase during the market. At the market close we will draw the winning numbers. Prizes will need to be collected from the next Norfolk Diet market on 8 December. All proceeds will be donated directly to Norwich Food Bank.

We are pleased to have been asked by the Forum to hold an extra market this year on the evening of the Norwich Christmas light switch on.

We’ve got 19 fantastic stalls for you with a great range of delicious Norfolk food and drink. A number of the stalls will be selling ready to eat hot food so it will be the perfect chance to try something new without having to cook! All the stallholders are working on special festive produce for you including perfect gifts and the chance to order your Christmas feast.

We hope you have chance to join us.

With only a few days to go to Thursday’s Christmas Norfolk Diet Farmers Market our stall holders are all working away to bring you some extra special festive treats in addition to their normal range of goodies.

The Norfolk Honey Company will have mead making kits, lovely natural beeswax lip balms, ‘Learn Beekeeping’ gift vouchers and honey gift basket with dipper.

New to the market this time is Phil’s Chillis and they have Cranberry chilli chutney to go with your roast turkey. also new are Orchard Farm plants and they will have lovely traditional Christmas wreaths as well as a good selection of plants that would make lovely gifts.

The Norfolk Deli Co will be bringing venison pancetta and Cherry Leaf Coffee will have their festive mulled cake (and be taking orders too).
