The Frome Independent Market
The award winning, destination street market with a difference.
The Frome Independent is more than a market. It's an award winning community of artisans that come together on the first Sunday of every month with a mission to reclaim the high street. Showcasing the best independent designers, makers, producers and traders in the South West, the Frome Independent has become a creative hub for culture, community and conversation.
Established in 2013, the market has well and truly put Frome on the map and identified the community's hunger for local culture and great produce. Closing the whole of Frome town centre to traffic, the town centre becomes a pedestrian playground for locals and visitors, bringing the social fun back into shopping and encouraging engagement between the producer and the purchaser.
The Frome Independent stallholders are an eclectic mix of personalities with an abundance of talent and passion for their art. The range of produce available to explore spans from artisan food, garden & flowers, antiques and collectibles, handmade homewares, craft beers and publications. The focus on local designers and artists gives the market more of a festival feel, with live music & DJs playing throughout the day.
The Frome Independent is now one of Frome’s key tourist events, generating millions of pounds in revenue for its traders and Frome’s independent retailers. With over 80,000 visitors each year, the market has become a independent platform for the local industries, engaging a national audience and igniting a passion for local initiatives.
