BRIGG FARMERS' MARKET: SHOPPERS CAN COME BY TRAIN NOW SERVICE HAS RESUMED
Now passenger trains are running again on the Brigg line, hopefully some people from North Nottinghamshire, Gainsborough and Kirton Lindsey will use the service to visit Brigg Farmers' Market in the town centre tomorrow (Saturday, February 23).
Shoppers and stall-holders will be hoping for decent weather when the monthly market takes place from 9am to mid-afternoon.
There's an opportunity to purchase a wide range of tasty food and drink from the producers.
The Saturday general market will also be taking place in the town centre at the same time.
Both markets are organised by North Lincolnshire Council.
The first train of the day from Sheffield leaves the city at 7.55am, calling at Worksop (8.25am), Retford (8.36am), Gainsborough (8.57am) and Kirton Lindsey (9.10am) before arriving at Brigg station at 9.19am - perfect for those going to market.
People from Cleethorpes and Grimsby can also use Brigg line trains, restored last weekend following months of industrial action. The first train tomorrow will get them into Brigg station at 11.48am.
