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.

​​PLEASE NOTE: In light of the recent Covid-19 outbreak, the Taunton Independent Market is on hold for the foreseeable future. We will aim to resume our monthly markets on Castle Green as soon as it is safe to do so and in line with Government advice.  In the meantime, please visit our online shop!

Please remember to check our Facebook Page for updates on future Sunday markets.
