The Frome Artisan and Produce Market is held on the first Sunday of the month on Catherine Hill every year starting in April. The area comprising Catherine Hill, Stony Street, and Palmer Street – historically known as St Catherine’s - has been the heart of Frome since the C17th. Its history as an independent shopping and trading area is long and diverse. St Catherine’s area is already known for its eclectic and unusual mix of designer makers, arts and crafts, clothing, flowers and antiques. More and more visitors are coming to Frome for the Sunday market because of the ecclectic and creative mix of handmade work, food and music to enjoy and buy. The theme of the market is designer/maker artists, local food and produce, retro and collectibles. Traders include At The Chapel in Bruton who bring artisan bread fresh from their ovens. Emma and Adam who design and make beautiful little collectables in glass and ceramics along with many others. The artisan market has set up a not-for profit company to run the market. Any money made by the company is re-invested in other regeneration projects within the St Catherine’s area of Frome. As a not-for-profit company the cost of the stalls is being kept to a minimum currently set at £25.00. Stallholders are selected on their suitability for the market rather than on a first come first served basis.
