… more than a market! On the first Sunday of the month from March to December, the town centre of Frome is closed to traffic and is transformed into a huge celebratory market event.
More like a monthly festival, there is a buzz in the air with music, street theatre, hands on activities and tasty street food. The event is divided into different sections including a flea market, new designers, crafts and vintage. Somerset Farmers’ Markets organises the centrally located 24 pitch ‘farmers’ market’ section around the Market Cross – just look out for the green and white striped canopies. A complete farmers’ market experience but with a few hot food options for all day grazing.
Location: around the Boyle Cross in the Market Place, BA11 1BW
