This is a particularly busy period for markets in Brigg.
In addition to the long-established weekly Thursday and Saturday general markets and the monthly farmers' event for September, there are some extras ahead.
An Antique & Craft Market is now being held in Brigg every second Saturday of the month, which means the next will be this weekend (September 11) with a wide range of stalls.
Brigg Farmers' Market is held on the fourth Saturday, so make a note of September 25 to stock up on produce and treats.
North Lincolnshire Council, the local markets authority, adds: "Brigg Foodfest will be on Friday 1 October and Love Lincolnshire Day will be in Brigg on 2 October."
Brigg Heritage Centre, located in the town centre's Angel building, is now offering craft activities again for young visitors.
Pop in between 10am and 2pm on Saturday (September 11) to decorate masks and then take them home.
We gather that the Independent Brigg Line Rail Group will be promoting passenger train trips to our town from North Nottinghamshire and elsewhere in Lincolnshire among people who may be interested in the Antique & Craft Market this Saturday.
If the Sheffield-Brigg-Cleethorpes trains can't run for any reason, a substitute bus service will be arranged by the Northern operator. So folk living on the Brigg line will still be able to pay a visit.
