about the taunton independent market
In recent years, Taunton had become a market town without a weekend market. Over the last couple of years local business woman Michelle Beck, who runs By Invitation Events, dreamed of bringing the heart back to our County Town by creating a monthly destination market.
The Taunton Independent Market launched successfully in March 2020 with over 65 stalls and exceeded all expectations by bringing a positive vibe to Taunton’s town centre and attracting in excess of 7.5k people into the County Town on the day.
The Taunton Independent Market (TIM) is a quality destination street market, showcasing the best local producers of food, drink, crafts, homewares, beauty and fashion, providing visitors a unique retail experience with an emphasis on shopping local. It connects customers with local suppliers, bringing enormous benefits to Taunton's economy and reputation as the County Town of Somerset.
Due to the re-introduction of lockdown restrictions across the UK, the Taunton Independent Market has been cancelled for 2020, however, you can still support our local businesses by using our online shop, which has a plethora of delicious food and thoughtful gifts.
