The team behind a popular street food event in Norwich is taking things up a gear to celebrate three years in business. 

Junkyard Market launched outside St Mary's Works in 2020 in response to the pandemic and, due to its success, it has continued to run from Friday to Sunday every week.

To celebrate its third birthday, the Junkyard Food Festival will take place in Earlham Park from Friday, October 6 until Sunday, October 8 2023.
