Frome is a town that does things differently. It's a market town with an independent outlook, home to about 27,000 people and packed with independent businesses and creative, community activities.
Regularly topping lists of great places to live, Frome has built a reputation as an attractive place to do business, and a town with a sustainability agenda.
It is more enterprising than the average town. About 15% of the UK workforce is self employed, but 27% of Frome's working residents are working for themselves.
There is an independent market each month showcasing a range of handcrafted and homegrown produce and products. The town has an active business community, a thriving town hall with an independent council promoting 'flat pack democracy' and a sustainable agenda. There are regular farmers markets, a vegan market each month, dozens of independent shops, ecologically focused learning co-operatives, organic small holdings and market gardens, and big data analytics firms housed in super eco friendly high tech barns
