Dreaming of hazy summer days

Here’s the line up:

Once you’ve made your way through the inimitable Suitcase Sale on Cheap Street and Catherine Hill, refuel from 20+ Street Food and Drink traders on Scott Road, Market Place and in The Village Green!
Don’t forget to take home something delicious to keep you going all week from our Food Producers in Market Place, Stony Street and Somerset Farmer’s Markets at The Boyle Cross.

If you need a little sit down after all of that, head to the Village Green where you’ll find lots of lovely deckchairs to relax in while our DJs keep your ears happy, and Bath Children’s Literature Festival keep the smaller folk entertained with badge and bunting making, word searches and activity sheets.

Don’t miss the vintage hoopla and hook-a-duck – with ace prizes, and proceeds going to The Frome Independent’s featured charity Fair Frome, there’s no excuse not to partake in a little summer fete fun!

Active & In Touch will be back at the market to spread the word about their hugely important work visiting, helping and befriending people who have become isolated or out of touch with the community around them.

MARKET MAKERS – support The Frome Independent and make the good stuff happen!
To fund the free market day activities including live music, art activities, workshops and street performance, The Frome Independent relies on money raised through its Market Maker scheme – it’s only £20 per person to join for a year and you’ll get a free gift from The Frome Independent, ongoing exclusive discounts from all the traders and a selection of Frome shops!

If you’re coming from out of town, please check out the VISIT page for all the information that you’ll need for getting to the market. The super convenient Park & Ride service is in operation – if you’re bringing your car, please use the Park & Ride and do not park in residential streets, as this causes obstructions for residents.
