Food, Art and Craft at Lincoln’s Markets

You'll find the freshest local produce, the best local artwork and unique local gifts and ornaments at Lincoln's markets.

Lincoln's streets and squares come alive on regular dates through the year as a variety of markets, fairs and fêtes are held.  A regular programme of farmers' markets, artists' markets and craft markets give the opportunity to come back for more and other fairs and street parties provide dates to keep in the diary.

Meet local farmers and sample some of Lincolnshire's finest food at the Farmers' Market. The market takes place three times a month - on every 1st Friday on City Square, every 2nd Wednesday on High Street and every 3rd Saturday on Castle Square - and is the perfect place to get the freshest local produce.

Some of Lincoln's top and up-and-coming artists show and sell their work at the Artists' Market on the first Saturday, in Castle Square, and the last Saturday, on the Brayford Waterfront, of each month from March til November.  Find a unique piece of art for your home or take a souvenir of your visit to the historic city.

Every other Saturday you'll find locally handmade crafts and gifts on sale at the Craft Market in Lincoln Cornhill.  Through the year you'll also find the Fête on the Strait, antiques fairs, international food fairs and the famous Christmas Market at the beginning of December.

Whether a local to the area or visiting the city for the first time, Lincoln's markets are something to look out for and something you won't experience anywhere else.  Find out more at or search #LincolnMarkets on Twitter.
