The Frome Independent Market

This weekend we visited family in Bath, we really needed a a change of scenery and Bath is just so stunning!

I headed to the local farmer shop to buy cake as someone does when they are trying to lose weight! There I spotted a sweet little vintage shop with the cutest bits and bobs. I got talking to the shop owner who told me all about The Independent Frome Market, a huge market supporting independent producers and makers, the market is held in the historic town of Frome. Its only there the first Sunday of every month so as far as I was concerned it was fate and we had to go! 

We arrived at 11am, all of the main car parks were full but we found a side street to park in, just a 5 minutes walk along the river, we spotted a playground which we promised the little lads we could visit on the way home. 

Then I was in stall heaven!! The Frome Independent Market is huge!! We started in the main Frome car park which felt more like a flea market, vintage goodies, clothes, furniture etc.. The main road into Frome is closed and crammed full of stalls, every stall different from the last. I couldn't believe how much talent could be crammed on to one road!

Not only does The Frome Independent Market have loads of stalls it has a great atmosphere with live music playing, visual arts and the aroma of delicious foods being cooked.

Off the main road, was where the majority of the foodie stalls were, all in one place. I suffer with serious food envy and always want what others have, so I have learnt (the hard way) to have a good look before I decide. There was a huge choice with the Hog Roast, Falafel and Fishcake Stall proving to be most popular. But I had a posh kebab which was soooo good! 

Maybe because it was a Bank Holiday weekend, or because the weather was good, or just because The Frome Independent Market is very popular, but it was very busy! We never had any difficulties getting to look at the pieces on the stalls (mainly because there were just so many) but Beaux spent the majority of the time in my arms and on The Misters shoulders. Which meant we only stayed for a few hours, The Littles enjoyed the buzzy atmosphere, having a little dance and sampling lots of different foods (mainly fudge!) but were keen to go on to the local playground so they could run free!

I've already circled Sunday 5th June in my diary as I will definitely be returning! The Grandparents have said myself and The Mister can go it alone next time, as I would have loved to have more time browsing the stalls without having to keep a beady eye on The Littles
