We went to the December market which had the benefit of a nice ‘festive’ feel. We had a great day and it was hugely well patronised despite the almost constant drizzle! Great to see so many genuine artisans selling their wares. This was our first...More

A wonderfully vibrant market with great stalls -and very friendly! My wife bought a beautiful vase at a really reasonable price. Frome itself is beautiful: full of great shops and eateries.

This is a must, such a wonderful vibe with something for everyone, Frome by the sea for children. Artisan coffee, a fabulous range of street food. A vast collection of crafts and produce to discover along with a wonderful range of vintage goods. Brilliant.
