Welcome to the Frome Food Assembly! Register now to buy the best of Frome's local produce online. Our collection night is every Wednesday, 5.30-7.30pm at the Steiner School, on Park Road, and the weekly online sale closes late night the previous Monday.
We have worked very hard to source produce from a huge variety of local farmers and growers. When we say "Yes to local!" we mean it. We have sourced most of our food from no more than 25 miles away (and closer when we can) although we have made the occasional exception for fish etc.
Suppliers include Vallis Veg (fruit and veg), right here in the heart of Frome, Ivy House Farm Dairy in Beckington for organic milk, cream, and butter, The Old Bakehouse for our bread (it doesn’t get much more local than Cheap Street!), Wookey Farm near Cheddar for all things goat (cheese, yoghurt, meat, milk) and lamb, Bill the Butcher of Bruton and Farm2Fork for free range, traditional breeds of meat and poultry, Frome Country Market for preserves and baked goods, Meadowside Farm Café (Frome again) for game, wholesome ready meals such as lasagna, quiche, and delicious tarts, and Little Jack Horner from Mells for light and crispy sausage rolls. We also have fabulous rapeseed oils and dressings from Fussels Fine Foods in Beckington, free range eggs and pork from New MacDonalds Farm in Corsham, and Bioaqua Farm, with their trout pate, fillets and living salads will also be joining us every 2nd week of the month. Phew! That's quite a list and we are always looking to expand our range to tempt you...
Interested? Register now to buy online. There is NO commitment to buy, and no minimum order quantities.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
