Traders have been announced for a huge food festival run by the team behind a popular street food market in Norwich.

To celebrate Junkyard Market's third birthday, its food festival will take place in Earlham Park from Friday, October 6 until Sunday, October 8 2023.

The event will welcome 'The Ribman' who has been trading in London since the 1990s with the self-proclaimed 'best ribs in London'.

He has never traded in Norfolk before and will be making his first event appearance in two years.

Michael Femi-Ola said: "The Ribman is classed as the godfather of street food and he started out trading in the original farmer's markets which gave birth to what we now know as foodie hotspots in the city like Borough Market and Brick Lane."
