Lincoln street food market

March 29, 2019

The third visit of this disastrous street food market. The surprise is that it was ever invited to return.

Little more than a travelling circus.

The low quality summed up by two cheese stalls very poor quality cheese, but other stalls little better.

Why a beer stall in the Cornhill. Not enough drunkenness on the streets? Why were many of the tables barred from use in what is public space.

Large generators polluting the High Street.

Overflowing bins of rubbish.

Who is responsible for inviting this disastrous street food market? At a guess another major fail by Lincoln BIG hyped by Visit Lincoln.

Whoever has not a clue what constitutes good street food.

Why does not Lincoln organise its own street food market?

Invite a few stalls, build up slowly. Any stall that is not quality, any stall problem with obnoxious smells, do not invite again.

In the meantime, to taste quality street food try Curry Jacks, every week in Lincoln town centre.

Lincoln Street Food Market

March 17, 2017

Wednesday was a lovely warm spring day, some parts of the country almost reached 19C.

Today 9C, strong cold wind, with windchill factor much lower, then it started to rain.

Begs the question, why hold a street food market this time of year?

Would not late spring, summer or early autumn be a better time?

No publicity the days before.

Large generators beside the stalls, very noisy.

Why not an arrangement where plug into power sources from lampposts, as they do in other towns?

Awful music blasting out from many of the stalls, which was very unpleasant.

It was only later, I learnt there were stalls the other side of the level crossing, by then too late. Nothing anywhere to say more stalls.

I did not try any of the stalls, and none seemed busy, too cold. I did though have a cappuccino off The Little Bicycle Coffee Shop.

Organised by a travelling circus, which explains why not very good.

Godalming has an annual street food festival, that puts this to shame.

And if true what I was told by a local coffee shop, Lincoln BIG are paying to bring this travelling circus into town, then not good.

Lincoln should  organise its own street food festival, invite stalls.

Though on the other hand, looking at their competence or lack thereof on running markets in the town, then maybe not.

The street food market will run Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Through the busy pedestrianised High Street, an idiot driving through in a van, even though not permitted, with one hand on steering wheel, the other holding a mobile phone. Several pedestrians nearly run down.

Coffee Aroma is harassed for leaving tables and chairs outside after four o’clock, on the other hand blind eye turned to traffic driving through a busy pedestrianised street putting pedestrians at risk middle of the afternoon.
