New website norwichmarket.net launched on Friday and as well as providing a directory of all the businesses, orders can be made through the website for click-and-collect and some are also offering delivery.

There are seven traders that have signed up so far, which are And Eat It, Barry’s of Norwich, Churros for the People, Delight, Number 29 Soap, Sir Toby’s Beers and The Cuppie Hut.

The platform was the brainchild of Josh Worley, 24, whose family took over Barry’s of Norwich fabric stall in 2018 after owner Barry Reid retired, and he is also head of creative at web design company Elementary Creative.

Mr Worley, from Long Stratton, said: “After the first lockdown, I realised that other companies out there were offering an ordering and delivery service but were charging a lot to businesses and a delivery fee to the customer.

“I wanted to create a single place where people can find out about all the stalls, events coming up and news from the market and to set up our own ordering service that was significantly cheaper than the competition.

Mr Worley is also working with food delivery company Norwich Urban Collective, which was set up in May by friends Samantha Woodhouse, Maryanne Moles, Adam Burt and Joel Rial, which doesn’t take commission.

Unlike national companies that can take up to 30pc, it instead gives 100pc of the food bill to the restaurant or vendor with a flat £5 delivery fee going to the driver.
