People will be able to enjoy delicious street food and sweet treats when the popular North Lincs FoodFest comes to Brigg this weekend.
Many of the fantastic Brigg-based eateries will showcase their dishes in the market place from 12 to 8pm on Friday 1 October.
There’ll be stone-baked sourdough pizza from Yellowbelly Pizza Co, tapas and sangria from La Finca and a selection of homemade cakes and scones from Shipley’s Curiositeas.
Lots of FoodFest favourites also make a welcome return to the town, with pie and mash from Pie-o-neers, a hog roast from Hepy’s, gyros from Brads and German sausages from Come Dine with Me.
The FoodFest is part of the council’s Government-supported ‘Welcome back’ campaign, which encourages people to shop local and support businesses.
Regional produce on offer will include handmade fudge from Blue Gnu, cheese from Celebration Cheeses, honey from The Little Honey Bee and fresh fish from MJ Capps and son.
Those with a sweet tooth will also be well catered for, with crepes and chocolate pots from The Crepe Company, cheesecakes and puddings from For Heaven’s Cakes and milkshakes from Sweet Memories.
As well as the fabulous food, there’ll be lots to keep the whole family entertained, with free rodeo bull rides and the opportunity to take photos with Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.
People will also have the chance to find out more about the facilities at Brigg Heritage Centre and meet volunteers from the Brigg Food Bank and the Brigg Police Team.
Cllr Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for safer, stronger communities – rural, said:
“Events like the food festivals are so important to North Lincolnshire’s family-run businesses, that have adapted brilliantly to the challenges over the past 18 months. This a great chance for local people to show their support to them and rediscover our fantastic high streets.
“With such a great selection of street food on the menu, visitors to the Brigg FoodFest will be spoilt for choice – all I would say is make sure you arrive with an appetite!”
