Moroccan market to visit Lincoln

Moroccan traders use traditional techniques to produce authentic clothing, ceramics, food and herbs

Sights and sounds of Africa will come to Lincoln in October, when The Moroccan Market of Handicraft stops-off at St Mark’s Square.

Touring 16 UK cities, the market will transform St Mark’s with 38 traders in their Berber-style tents pitching-up from Thursday 13 to Sunday, October 16.

Aside from offering a unique cultural experience, the market is an opportunity for shoppers to find an authentic unusual treat for themselves or their home or a gift for somebody else.

The market will offer traditional clothing, vibrant and colourful rugs, candles, pottery and ceramics along with food, herbs and spices.

Visitors will be encouraged to wonder round at their own leisure and listen to the sounds of a traditional Gnawa band.

Lincoln BIG events and promotions manager, Michael Armstrong, is behind the event and feels Lincoln’s markets are making the city an increasingly popular destination for shoppers with Farmers’, Regional, Continental and Italian Markets throughout the year.

“These events bring an extra splash of colour and culture to Lincoln’s wonderful mix of mainstream and niche shopping,” said Armstrong.
