Farmers’ markets and food festivals

Great food is a passion here in North Lincolnshire and we’re spoilt for choice!

The FARMA accredited Brigg Farmers’ Market is held on the fourth Saturday of the month.

Brigg Farmers’ Market has been attracting visitors from far and wide for over fifteen years and one visit will help you understand why. Choose from varieties of cheese, sausages, freshly baked artisan breads, every variety of jam you can think of and even ostrich burgers!

Twice a year, in the spring and autumn, the market grows into a food festival with more choice than ever, family entertainment and cookery demonstrations.

Annual events

Many of our events are so good that you’ll want to pop the date in your diary and invite some friends too!

Brigg has a growing reputation for sporting events. The Brigg Bomber and triathlon attract national athletes to take part in the gruelling courses through our attractive countryside.

If art is your passion, why not come and see the Insight Open Studios in September? This nationally acclaimed event brings together over 50 artists and venues to showcase the best local arts and quality crafts. See artists at work, take a sneaky peek at their unfinished pieces and even pick up a few tips.

The Bike Night in Barton is legendary, with thousands of classic, vintage and modern motorbikes proudly on display in the town’s streets.

The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft is the setting for regular ‘gatherings’ of vintage buses from across the world.
