A much-loved cake stall on Norwich Market is expanding into a shop and will sweeten up its first customers with goodie bags.

The Cuppie Hut is opening in St Giles Street this Saturday, February 26 from 10am to 4pm, with freebies for the first 50 people that make a purchase.

The goodie bags include samples of six sweet treats, plus gifts from other local businesses such as Planted and Lisa Angel.

Owners and best friends Mel Abel and Kim Cooper, both from Hethersett, will still keep the market stall, which will be run by Phoebe Wallen.

Mrs Cooper said: "It is great to give other businesses a shout out and an opportunity to show their products." 

On offer at both premises are cupcakes, brownies, bakewell tarts, blondies and much more, including plenty of vegan options. 

The new shop will be open Tuesday to Saturday with opening times TBC - follow @the_cuppie_hut on Instagram for updates.
