BRIGG MARKET MOVES INDOORS FOR FIRST TIME SINCE 13TH CENTURY


There haven't been many occasions in recent decades when Brigg market has failed to take place. However, today (Thursday, April 2) there are no stalls present, following North Lincolnshire Council's decision to suspend all Brigg markets until further notice during the Coronavirus emergency.
Please note, though, that Barry Chilvers, who usually operates his fruit and veg stalls near the Buttercross, has been given use of the nearby Molly's Flowers shop to sell fresh produce to the public today.
So it might be argued Barry's efforts mean there is a market after all, and that it has moved indoors - probably for the first time since the royal charter was granted in the early 13th century.
'Socially distanced' customers need to wait outside the shop before being served with their greens, as our picture demonstrates (taken this morning).
Snow and strong winds have resulted in the non-appearance of Brigg market stalls on only a handful of Thursdays since 2007 when Brigg Blog started offering news and views to the local community.
