We need you to join our independent community to help us maintain our independence and to survive and thrive.
Behind the shopping there is social benefit – we are a not-for-profit social enterprise reinvesting any surplus back into our community event. Each year we help raise thousands of pounds for Frome-based charities as well as generating an estimated £2.5 million pounds of economic benefit for Frome. We employ and receive help and support from many local businesses and community partners.
In order to keep the event in the town centre, free to everyone who wants to attend, keep pitch fees affordable for our traders, and to continue with the extra-curricular activities that make us ‘more than a market’, we came up with the Market Maker scheme as a way for our visitors and fans to opt in and support us.
The deal is simple: Market Maker membership costs £20 per individual or £30 per couple for the year, which works out as roughly £2 per market. In return members will receive a Market Maker card entitling them to amazing discounts and offers all year on market days, online and in between markets. Benefits come not only from The Frome Independent’s great traders, but also from a range of Frome’s fantastic independent businesses, creating a year-round, town-wide independent loyalty card.
With our Market Makers support we are able to keep our independence, host special community events and support local groups and charities.
To become a Market Maker sign up here and help make good things happen.
If you are an independent Frome business and would like to join the scheme please contact us.
