I like wandering through markets after hours. There’s something desolate and slightly ghostly about it. The next morning, everything is back in full swing. Yet, at night – or even in the late afternoon, as here in Norwich – the closed stalls has a very different feel.
I wonder if it felt the same in the 11th century. That’s when Norwich Market, or Norwich Provision Market, was founded. It has been in operation at the same site ever since.
Where is Norwich Market?
- Norwich, Norfolk county, England
- About 2 hours by train from central London
Beautiful, I like the colors 🙂
Now that is old. Love the colors.
I really love when a place is colourful! I find it just lifts people’s moods
What a great photo – capturing market colors after it has closed. Great idea. . .I’ll be keeping my eyes open for such shots.
How neat that they are all in different colors!
Terrific–a market that is colorful even after hours.
Great colors! Somehow they remind me of the little building on beaches to rent umbrellas.
Love this shot of those colorful market stalls. So cool to think about a market being so old!
When I read the title I imagined grey skies, litter on the floor, and a few pigeons looking for crumbs! I had no idea Norwich market would be so bright and colourful, lovely photo. Thank you.
Love how you captured the after hours market – and love the fact someone gave some thought as to how to make the market visually interesting when its closed.
Such a fun and quirky place. Looks like a Dr. Seuss book.
Love your posts about the UK. It’s nice to learn more about our own country! 🙂 I love the vibrant colours at this market.
What a great shot – it’s so beautiful and colourful! My mind immediately thought “beach” when I saw the photo as well – I don’t think I’ve ever seen a market as visually interesting after hours as this one.
Reminds me of the stands along the Seine in Paris, only much more colorful!
Love the colours!
Love this shot. The colors are great!
I think you’ve captured the colours really well. Norwich isn’t just about the old though, have you bean to the Sainsbury Centre?
@James – The Sainsbury Centre is at the university, isn’t it? No, I haven’t been there – yet. I really liked Norwich though, so next time. East Anglia is such a nice region, though somewhat overlooked, it seems. Odd, considering how accessible it is – especially with all the budget airlines at Stansted airport.
Thanks for all the comments on this little photo post. Norwich is certainly worth a visit – a lively university town in a lovely region.
Hey Anne-Sophie, your photo looks nice and colorful. Norwich market looks like a playful place. I wonder how it looks when the market is open.
