Now in its eleventh year, this outdoor canopy market is situated in the very pretty Hollies Gardens next to the High Street and in front of Sainsbury’s. It takes place on the first Saturday of each month.
The market has a very good selection of local producers including two cheese makers, organic vegetables, meat, game, fresh fish, baked goods and preserves. With support from Midsomer Norton Town Council, the atmosphere is enhanced by local musicians and celebratory events. A small and very friendly market.
The market was joined in mid-2015 by a craft market made up of local crafts people which runs every month, for more information about the craft market, contact the Midsomer Norton Community Trust on 01761 419133. The Midsomer Norton Community Cafe provides fair trade hot drinks to perk you up in the mornings.
