With the monthly Brigg Farmers' Market taking place on a bank holiday weekend, a very large attendance of shoppers from across the district and well beyond is expected on Saturday, August 26.
We hope that a good number will come to Brigg by train from North Nottinghamshire, West Lindsey and the Grimsby area, with rail line campaigner Paul Johnson reckoning it's a peak time tomorrow.
The various farmers' market stalls in the Market Place will be trading from 9am until mid-afternoon, as will those on the adjoining Saturday general market, extending into Wrawby Street.
New Brigg book shop, The Rabbit Hole, has its official opening on Saturday and is confident that many people will pop in and view  the new venture.

It is located a short distance down Market Lane, which runs off the Market Place, not far from the Woolpack. It's literally a stone's throw from the farmers' market stalls.
The proprietors of the new venture tell us: "Words Count will be coming with Peter Rabbit goodies and we will have The White Rabbit and hopefully The Gruffalo (although awaiting definite confirmation of this)  giving out a variety of freebies. 
"Free tea and coffee will be available alongside treats and activities for the children. 
"We have had a great response so far and lots of positive comments and feedback.
"We are looking forward to being part of a great community and hope we can offer something interesting and useful to the people of Brigg and surrounding areas."

These pictures of the farmers' market were taken at last August's event, which saw plenty of sunshine. 
Fingers crossed for a repeat this weekend!

The Rabbit Hole shop, on Market Lane, Brigg,  will be holding its official opening on Saturday, August 26.
