There are many things that make Tavistock a wonderful place to visit. Apart from being the hub of, let’s face it, pretty much everything you could possibly want, Tavistock is renowned for its variety of unique shops that will make you never want to leave this beautiful market town.

Tavistock also has its very own farmers’ market voted The Best Farmers’ Market in the South West, packed full of locally sourced goodies and delicious produce, arts & crafts, plants, books, bags, and more.  Just a footstep from the market you will find a vast selection of exclusive shops that will captivate you the minute you walk through their doors.

But wait, it doesn’t stop there! Tavistock is not only a great place to buy local, organic and fresh food; it is also a fantastic place to shop for stylish clothes, jewellery and curious gifts both large and small.
While you’re here, why not take advantage of some of Tavistock’s finest boutiques where you’ll find men’s, women’s and children’s clothes, jewellery, bags and accessories as well as high-end international clothes just dying to be worn by you! Or lose yourself in shops full of handmade soaps that you can smell from the street! If you’re planning on exploring Dartmoor then make sure you pop into the outdoor stores that are definitely worth a visit, where you’ll find everything you need from dog walking gear and outdoor clothing to cooking and camping kits.

Not only does Tavistock provide a fantastic shopping experience, it provides a memorable one. There’s not one shop in Tavistock where you are not made to feel welcomed into the community. When you shop in Tavistock, you might walk in a stranger, but you will leave a friend.
