Market Makers 

Market Makers is a membership scheme for our visitors. Visitors purchase a membership card which gives them access to exclusive offers and discounts from our traders and participating Frome shops for the year ahead.  

We ask that all traders make a discount to our Market Makers. This discount can be for any amount that you choose and does not have to cover all of your product range, but can only be available to Market Makers. If you have any questions or need guidance, please email us on

The Frome Independent is a not for profit social enterprise that does not receive ongoing subsidies from the local councils, or outside corporate sponsorship.  We therefore rely on money raised through the Market Makers scheme to fund our free market day activities such as live music, children’s activities and street performance.
