Win a prize for your pumpkin

Brigg Harvest Food Festival is returning to the market town on Saturday 25 October from 11am to 3pm and pumpkin growers are encouraged to bring their pumpkins along to enter in the pumpkin competition.

The competition is looking to find the biggest pumpkin grown locally. Have you grown a pumpkin big enough to win? You could be in with a chance of winning a great prize.

All you have to do is bring your pumpkin to the Harvest Food Festival and register your entry at the collection point. Local chef, Nigel Brown will judge which the biggest pumpkin is at around 12pm.

There will be two categories to enter - a schools entry and children's entry.

Schools in the area have already been contacted but children from across North Lincolnshire are welcome to bring their entries on the day.

The winning school will receive a trophy and the winner of the children's category will receive a £10 gift voucher to spend at Waters' Edge Visitor Centre.

Bring along your pumpkin on Saturday 25 October to be in with a chance of winning.

As well as the usual great produce on offer at the Farmers' Market the Harvest Food Festival will see additional stalls along Wrawby Street creating a fantastic street marker in the centre of Brigg.

Local chef, Nigel Brown will be presenting two cookery demonstrations in the bandstand showing shoppers how to make the best use of the produce available.

Entertained will be provided throughout the day by Nutty Norman with his unique offering of Punch & Judy, and balloon modelling. It is set to be a really fun day for all the family.

Why not have a go at the other pumpkin competition? Correctly find all the pictures of pumpkins hidden around the market and you could win a hamper of delicious local produce donated by the producers at the Farmers' Market.

Brigg Farmers' Market started in June 2000 with just 15 stalls. It now has over 30 stalls at each market. It is widely considered to be one of the best markets in the country and recently won the Farm Shop and Deli Awards Market of the Year 2014.

Councillor Liz Redfern, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: "The markets in Brigg are always very popular. The Harvest Food Festival brings some great additions to the award-winning Farmers' Market. You will be able to buy lots of delicious produce that is sourced locally. Go along and have a wander around the stalls, and have a chat with the producers about what they have to offer. It is always a great atmosphere and with the pumpkin madness it is sure to be an enjoyable day out for all the family."
