September brings an abundance of seasonal produce to The Frome Independent. You’ll find an amazing range of local fruits, salads and  vegetables at the Somerset Farmers Market stalls by the Boyle Cross. Stock up on award winning cheeses, charcuterie, sausage rolls, bread,  foraged jellies and chutneys for lazy late summer suppers.

This month we are delighted to welcome our near neighbours, The Newt in Somerset. Head to the Village Green by the library where they’ll be offering free children’s harvest themed craft activities, samples of their delicious local produce and an opportunity to find out more about their working estate and support for local growers and producers.

Browse the Homes and Gardens section by the river for fresh and dried flowers, plants for inside and out plus beautiful garden ornaments. Rummage through the lively Flea for vintage finds, find the perfect piece of jewellery, ceramics, original artwork or home fragrance from our  amazing range of local designer makers throughout the town centre.

Don’t miss live music from the busking stage in the Market Place. It’s  a lively lineup as always but this month features local legends Al O’Kane and Sloe Jam.

11.00-11.30 Sloe Jam (acoustic duo)

11.45-12.15 Jane Bennett Singer (jazzy covers of popular songs)

12.30-1.15 Hello Hopeville (Americana, country, blues)

1.30-2.15 Al O’Kane (folk, rock and blues)

2.30-3.oo The Fab Twins (vintage harmony covers)
