Welcome to the Frome Food Assembly! Register now (it's free) 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.

If you are interested, simply register now to buy online. There is NO commitment to buy, and NO minimum order quantities. If you want to “try before you buy” come along to one of our quarterly tasting events and meet our producers and taste their wares!

Our amazing local suppliers include:
Meat – from Bill the Butcher in Bruton and Cools Farm Organic in East Knoyle. We also have game from Castlemead Poultry when in season.
Fruit and Veg - Vallis Veg from right here in the heart of Frome, Teeny Greeny Farm (microgreens) from Trowbridge and Bioaqua Living Veg. We also stock a limited number of “exotic” (but we think essential) fruit and veg – eg lemons, oranges etc brought to us by Bill the Butcher courtesy of Bristol Wholesale Market.
Dairy – from Wookey Farm near Cheddar for all things goaty, Ivy House Farm Dairy in Beckington for organic Jersey milk, cream and butter and Hurdlebrook Guersey yoghurts, cream and crème fraiche etc. We also have a huge selction of local cheeses available from Bill the Butcher
Bread – The Old Bakehouse (you cant get much more local than Cheap Street!), the Rye Bakery in Frome and Taylors of Bruton. We also have yummy cakes and pastries from the Free Range Chef (Bradford on Avon) and gluten free delicacies from Ginger and Spice in Wincanton
A huge variety of homecooked Ready Meals are available from Meadowside Farm in Trudoxhill and Cavendish Cooks near Bath. We also have delicious sausage rolls from Little Jack Horner in Mells…
Fish – from Bioaqua Farm aquaponics system and Sole of Discretion ethically caught, sustainably fished from Plymouth Harbour.
Drinks – Wine from Quoins Vineyard in Bradford on Avon and More Wine in Upton Noble including locally sourced beer, ciders and wines (as well as wine from further afield available to buy in refillable bottles). We also have locally produced apple juices. Coffee is available from Girls Who Grind – ethically sourced coffee supporting the women in the coffee industry.
Home and Garden items including ethical, organic cleaning products from Greenscents, locally grown cut flowers from Stuart the Frome Flowerman and Wild Thyme plants in Friggle Street!
We also have rapeseed oils, mayonnaise, vinaigrettes and dressings from Fussels Fine Food in Beckington, culinary spices from Parva Spices, olive oil from Yeatman foods, and jam from Saints Preserve Us. We even stock a limited range of household essentials (bin bags, dried and tinned goods) from ethical wholesaler Suma.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
