Big Continental Market returns to city

Lincoln shall once again be playing host to the once-annual Continental Market in March.

After a short break, the market will be returning with foods and crafts from France, Germany, Holland, Spain and many other European countries.

The market will take place from March 4 to 6 in the city centre and St Marks, from 9am to 5.30pm on Friday and Saturday, and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.

Lincoln BIG events and promotions manager Michael Armstrong thinks it’s a great place to pick up gifts for people.

“The market will feature stalls selling giant Bratwurst cooked on a traditional German Schewenkgrille, Spanish paella cooked by Julian Jimenez from Cordoba in Spain, crepes, specialist cheeses from France and Holland, olives, dried fruit and nuts, and there will be a great Greek delicatessen.

“As well as the food, people will be able to choose from a wonderful selection of non-edible products, such as jewellery, pashminas, bags, belts, wooden carvings and all sorts of gifts.”

Lincoln BIG worked alongside Market Place (Europe) Ltd to set up the big market in the past.

Market Place director Allan Hartwell said: “We organised a number of events in Lincoln, up to a couple of years ago.

“After a short break, we are absolutely delighted to have been invited back. Lincoln is a great city and our traders receive a great welcome.”
