where to shop

Dolgellau has a selection of independent and individual shops – you won’t find many chain stores here. What you will find is everything from high quality local produce in the butchers and bakers to books, maps and out door essentials; from everyday basics to special gifts to remember your visit. There are boutiques selling jewellery made from local gold, sheepskin rugs, designer clothes and much more. We even have cashpoints – remember that not everyone takes cards round here!

Dolgellau has a fast expanding and very popular Farmers’ Market held on the third Sunday of every month. There’s also a fascinating local furniture and household goods auction Mart held on the third Thursday of every month. Come and explore both – you never know what treasures you might find.

If you are a local business owner and would like to advertise with Discover Dolgellau you can have an entry with photo completely FREE!. Just register for an account and add the information from your account page.
