There’s a “suitcase sale” atop Catherine Hill on the first Sunday of each month (think of trinkets sold out of a secondhand pram) and a vinyl-only “mobile disco” in an old laundry truck nicknamed Donna Somerset — both part of the new Frome Independent (March to December), which sees thousands of people flood car-free streets for everything from regional ciders and Cheddars to origami-paper bow ties.
