The Spring Food Festival is returning to Brigg this Saturday, April 25, from 9am to 3pm as part of the award-winning Farmers’ Market.

As well as the usual produce on offer at the Farmers’ Market there will be some additional stalls along Wrawby Street creating a street market in the centre of this historic market town.

You will be able to buy everything from locally reared beef, pork and lamb to Lincolnshire Poacher and Cote Hill cheeses.

There will also be a range of jams and preserves, organic breads, and gourmet fishcakes. Not forgetting ‘the best chocolate brownies around’ and new to the market this time is locally produced scrumptious honey.

Explore the stalls at the festival and sample new tastes. Chat to the friendly and knowledgeable producers to find out what they have to offer.

And local chef Nigel Brown will be presenting two cookery demonstrations in the bandstand showing shoppers how to make best use of the variety of delicious produce available.

There will also be entertainment throughout the day from Flo the Clown, making it a really fun day out for all the family.

And there will also be a competition running throughout the day to win a hamper packed with delicious local produce donated by the producers of the Farmers’ Market.

“There is always a fantastic atmosphere when the Food Festival comes to Brigg,” said Margaret Price, Senior Tourism and Event Management Officer.

“It is a great addition to the ever-popular Farmers’ Market. Brigg town centre will be bustling with shoppers on Saturday browsing the great range of stalls.

“Shoppers really like the Farmers’ Market and Food Festival as they can speak directly to the producers and can often try before they buy.

“The producers are always on-hand to provide valuable tips and recommendations. Nigel Brown will also be creating some delicious meals from the produce on offer.

“As well as the Food Festival, Brigg has lots of unique boutiques, shops and cafes. It is a brilliant place to visit. Go along on Saturday and see for yourself.”
