Easter egg hunt proves popular

by Sara-Jane Ludemann

A fortunate break in the weather ensured the annual Lincoln Farmers’ and Craft Market’s Easter special market was well attended on Saturday.

Throughout the year the weekly Saturday market, in Gerald Street next to the library, holds special events with the Easter market eagerly anticipated. 

As well as the 30-plus regular stalls offering everything from cheeses, speciality breads and coffee to wood craft, homewares and jewellery, there was plenty of entertainment along with the popular Easter egg hunt. 

More than 150 children went hunting for eggs, while craft activities with resident artist Jessica Shaw along with family games, and live music from Treena Wernham, kept marketgoers entertained.

The Lincoln Farmers’ and Craft Market, now into its 11th year, will be holding another special themed event next month with a ‘A Right Royal Do’ being held on Saturday, June 3 to coincide with the Queen’s Birthday.
