From sausage rolls to socks, you can pick up just about anything on Norwich Market.

But how much do you know about the people who keep the stalls ticking over?

The market has served Norwich since the start of the 14th century and currently has over 200 stalls, each with a hard-working owner looking to put smiles on customers' faces.

Down the years it has seen elections decided under its market cross and charlatans attempting to sell miracle cures in the 17th century, while its latest iteration was designed by Michael Innes who also shaped Castle Quarter (and its Russian cousin).

We sent our photographer Brittany Woodman along to capture the faces of the beer-makers, florists and other stallholders behind the city's historic trading centre.
