Whether you’re a first time visitor or seasoned market fan, here are some ways that you can save money and reap rewards on market days.
Market Maker Club
Support The Frome Independent and get discounts…
Our Market Maker Club is a unique membership scheme open to all visitors that costs £15 per year. In return, Market Makers receive a little red membership card entitling them to amazing discounts and offers all year round on market days, online and in between markets. Benefits come not only from The Frome Independent’s great traders, but also from a range of Frome’s fantastic independent businesses.
Revenue generated through membership fees goes to directly fund our free market day activities such as Frome-on-Sea (our annual pop-up beach!), monthly live music, children’s activities and street performance. We don’t use membership to monitor your buying habits or harvest your data (we’re too low-tech for that!), it’s just a way of rewarding loyal market goers and funding all of the market day fun.
To become a Market Maker sign up here.
If you are an independent Frome business and would like to join the scheme please contact us.
Earn points and discover independents…
In 2017 we joined forces with Pixie, an innovative discovery, reward and payment app that rewards customers for shopping with independent businesses. When customers pay using their Pixie app or payment card, they earn 1 point for every £1 pound spent. These points are then converted back into cash (1point = 1p) to spend with their favourite independents.
Signing up to Pixie couldn’t be easier: Simply download the free app, add cash to your account and use your smartphone or payment card in any of Pixie’s independent shops, cafes, restaurants and other businesses. With over 40 Frome shops now accepting Pixie pay, along with a growing number of our market traders, it’s a great way to earn rewards for shopping at The Frome Independent.
And it’s not just Frome, Pixie has independent communities all over the UK, so you can earn and spend your points in independent businesses in Sherborne, Bath, Bristol, London with new communities across England and Wales planned for 2019. Just look for the Pixie logo when you pay, and be sure to visit the Discover section of the Pixie app and website when you’re exploring new towns and cities.
