Welcome to our Buy Dartmoor Directory!

Shop Local - Buy Dartmoor

All across and around Dartmoor National Park we have many superb independent local producers offering a wide variety of quality produce and services. We have created this directory to support those small businesses who have been adversely affected during the pandemic, and to encourage people to shop locally on and around Dartmoor.

Many of these businesses have diversified into offering an online shop, so if you can’t be here in the area to enjoy all there is to offer, you can stock up and enjoy at home!

If you’re looking for a gift, you’ll find listings for businesses offering gift vouchers, so why not treat a loved one to a stay on Dartmoor, or a meal, activity or experience whilst they are here.

Further down this page you’ll find all those businesses offering takeaway, delivery, and click & collect services throughout these constantly changing and challenging times!

If you would like your business to feature in the Food & Drink or Products & Services sections on this page free of charge please contact Jen at [email protected]
