Discover independent shops in Cumbria

Given the vital role independent retailers play in supporting and promoting Cumbrian producers, we thought it made sense to dedicate a category of the Made in Cumbria website to them!

Nestled between the fells on picturesque landscapes, these shops provide a vital service to their local communities and to tourists who come to discover locally sourced treasures. From boutique clothing stores to charming grocery markets, each shop exudes a distinct character.
