As a small business in a wonderful however limited area (Norfolk), one of the best ways to start your path to success is through in person events. These events supply the public (your customers) with; the chance to buy/try your product, learn about your product and your business and connect a face/person to the company and products which gives a much better feeling purchase.
Here at Native2Norfolk our aim is to host a variety of; farmer's/producer's markets, food fairs and food festivals, throughout each year and across Norfolk in all the best spots for them. For this business I split up local food and drink events into my own 3 classes, as just mentioned, these each differ in a variety of ways such as a different atmosphere, number of stalls and general size of each site among other aspects such as:
Farmer's/Producer's Markets: These will be small yet effective, featuring a wide variety of product types while having minimal to no competition between types of products and businesses, meaning that if you're the stall selling just chutney there won't be another stall selling just chutney, however we'd also need a jam company and if we wanted this specific chutney company which doesn't make jam there may be a slight amount of chutneys on two different stalls if the jam company also makes and sells chutney, these will be held around Norfolk on weekends with as many as possible while routinely returning to each markets site monthly.
Food Fairs: This kind of event will be slightly larger than the farmer's/producer's market while maintaining a similar atmosphere, within the food fair there would be much more variety than at a farmer's/producer's market with more than a single business per product allowing the public to experience a little bit more of Norfolk's food and drink products, however these similar businesses will be limited to around 1-2 and possibly featuring some street food kind of options.
Food Festivals: These will be the largest of our events, designed to truly showcase everything Norfolk has to offer within it's food and drink scene, meaning a vast variety of all products that are Native2Norfolk, meaning the attendee's really get to see how much high quality and artisanal food and drink there is throughout Norfolk. These will be held through peak seasons for example summer and christmas, at these events you can expect to see a variety of stalls similar and different alongside; a cooking stage featuring Norfolk's best chefs and producers, plentiful seating throughout the site, games and activities for kids and adults alike and a wide variety of street food and food/drink to eat while at the event alongside our producers.
If you feel you're interested in taking part as a producer or chef through our journey as a business, then fill in the form below to be contacted around attending these in a professional sense in the near future.
OCTOBER FOOD FAIR AT THE FORUM
Our Largest Event Yet!
Being held on "Upper Millennium Plain" and the "Amphitheatre", this is being held as more a food fair rather than a market, to celebrate more of the variety our amazing county has as stated in my business proposal some of you may have seen, this will be one of the larger scale events we have held slowly building up to our food festival (fingers crossed for 2024).
2023 EVENTS AT SALLE MOOR FARM
A Series of Amazing Large Markets, Street Food Evenings and Possibly More!
We've been given the amazing chance to utilize a 10,000 square foot barn to run some events in 2023. This is at Salle Moor Hall Farm just outside of Reepham. For more information take a look through the form below or get in contact!
2024 EVENTS AT THE FORUM, NORWICH
Bringing events that showcase Norfolk's artisans back to Norwich!
2023 isn't over just yet, but that doesn't stop us from planning ahead! We will be returning to The Forum again, this year we have four dates signed off and definitely going ahead. I've decided to take the plunge and double the size of each event I hold here. For every event in 2024 we will be taking over both The Amphitheatre (as normal) and Upper Millennium Plain. Due to this expansion I can have up to 45-50 producers at each event.
