Lincoln’s much-loved street markets are poised to become even more popular as 2018 gets underway.
Those overseen by Lincoln Business Improvement Group (Lincoln BIG) are celebrating coming together – under smart new branding – and two have also merged.
Shoppers are promised an even more colourful experience in the months ahead and the opportunity to have fun tracking down unique artisan creations, interesting antiques, unmissable vintage collectables and the freshest tastes from the fields at our Farmers’ Markets.
Lincoln Makers’ Market
The Craft Market, run by Alison Martin (Yellowbelly Crafts) and Lincoln Artists’ Market, - organised by Leah Goldberg (Dancing Hare Pottery) have merged to create the Lincoln Makers’ Market.
This strategic move aims to introduce even more people to the wealth of traders’ talents and the sheer diversity of their products.
Browsers and buyers will find high-quality one-off paintings, unusual craft items, ceramics, glass art and jewellery – all made locally.
Stallholders will be sited in key city locations, giving shoppers the chance to enjoy the historic uphill area, the top of the High Street and the city’s Cornhill and Sincil Street area, which continues to undergo a multi-million pound transformation.
The Lincoln Makers’ Markets takes place as follows:
- March to December – Castle Hill – 1st Saturday of the month
- March to December – Lincoln Cornhill – 2nd Saturday of the month
- June to September – St Martin’s Square – 3rd Saturday of the month
Would-be traders who want to be part of the Lincoln Makers’ Markets taking place in Castle Hill or St Martin’s Square should contact Leah Goldberg on 07919 806593. Alternatively, those interested in trading at the Lincoln Cornhill Makers’ Market should contact Alison Martin on 07799 397974.
Lincoln Antiques Market
This popular market is back for 2018. Under the rebranding, from April the antiques market will have a new organiser, David Fairey of Lincoln Antiques & Collectables in The Strait.
People will be able to browse the Lincoln Antiques Market on Castle Hill on the third Sunday of the month, from April to October.
Lincoln Brocante Market
Newly-supported by Lincoln BIG and organised by Catherine Jenkins of Osa & Joy, this market promises to be the place to buy French-inspired shabby chic, vintage and upcycled homewares.
Shoppers will find the Lincoln Brocante Market at St Mark’s Shopping Centre on the last Saturday of the month, from April to October.
Lincoln Farmers’ Markets
Lovers of Lincolnshire’s fresh produce will be able to continue visiting their favourite Farmers’ Market stalls, as usual. Traders will be found in the High Street, every Friday, and in Castle Hill on every third Saturday of the month.
