Market Makers are GO

After the winter hibernation The Frome Independent market is back! And this year we’re launching a loyalty card. All our fans can now get incredible discounts, special offers AND help support us to survive and thrive in 2016.

The deal is simple: Market Maker membership costs £20 per individual or £30 per couple for the year, which works out as roughly £2 per market, and in return members will receive not only a warm fuzzy feeling but also a loyalty card entitling them to amazing discounts and offers all year on market days, online and in between markets. Deals and discounts will be offered by market traders and from participating independent shopkeepers in Frome.

We’re really excited to launch the Market Maker scheme,which is part fundraiser, part independent loyalty card with plenty of benefits. It will enable visitors and locals to access fantastic discounts, but will help support our core costs and retain our independence as a not-for-profit community organisation.

Here’s some of our brilliant new Market Makers helping us spread the word.

One newly paid up member Sandra Tate from Totnes said “Amazing market, brilliant shopping, why wouldn’t I want to show support?! Long may it thrive.”

A regular Frome Independent trader Neil Worley of Worley’s Cider said “As local, independent cider producers, The Frome Independent is very important to us. Trading regularly at a well-supported market makes a huge difference to small businesses like ours, and we’re happy to support the Market Makers scheme however we can.”

Independent retailer, Anthony Hick of Assembly on Catherine Hill said “The Market Makers card is a great way to engage with people both in the town and further a field, encouraging them to enjoy the town all year round.”

It couldn’t be easier to become a Market Maker, with sign up forms now live on The Frome Independent website.
