Seeing the Lincoln Knight sculpture for the first time, I felt its sophisticated style and architectural form looked preciously symbolic to a time where art was an important part of the ancient world of Egyptian Culture. So the period inspired the actual colour pallet and the use of hieroglyphics, which seemed an ideal vehicle to contain trade symbols to represent ‘The Central Market’ Independent traders/crafts their products and all good things in this close community of Lincoln. Plus, the Egyptian theme ties nicely into the Lincolnshire Poacher Regiment with its very distinct Egyptian sphinx logo with its strong Lincolnshire connection.

Sponsored by Lincoln Central Market
The Mayor and Citizens of the City of Lincoln were granted the rights to hold markets by King Edward III on 22 February 1329. For the last 77 years these rights have been focussed on the Central Market on the corner of Sincil Street and Waterside South.
The Central Market offers a wide range of goods and services at affordable prices from local suppliers. Recently we have expanded to include an outdoor offer on City Square and will be seeking to grow and nurture the market for generations to come.
