Food and Drink Surcharges
To enhance the Christmas Market and promote regional foods and to levy traders who produce significant levels of waste (e.g. cooking fats) we have redefined our bands for food surcharges. We hope that this will encourage a wider range of original food stalls, encourage healthy eating, and enhance the overall appearance of Lincoln Christmas Market. The surcharges cover our rising costs, with street cleaning and litter collection at the Christmas Market totalling over £30,000 each year. The surcharge also levies those traders with higher margins.

Band 1: 50% of stall price
Home butchered/baked/made
Tastes of Lincolnshire
Fair Trade
Hot Roast Chestnuts
(No other food may be sold)
Specialist regional/International
Over 75% of your produce must fit into this band for this to apply.

Band 2: 100% of stall price
‘Traditional’ fried burgers and hotdogs, candy floss, doughnuts, baked potatoes, crepes, pizza, Chocolate fountains, caramelised nuts, coffee, hot chocolate (with Baileys)
Please note that these foods will be assessed on an individual basis.

Alcohol Levy: £300.00
If you are selling alcohol including Baileys in coffee, you will be required to pay an alcohol levy as
part of the surcharges.
