Shop Independent Day
Please support your local businesses, every purchase however small makes such a BIG difference to our independent businesses. Here in Uttlesford our market towns offer a unique shopping experience. Our main centres are Saffron Walden and Great Dunmow, both have parking in the town centre for only £3.50 for the whole day, so why not grab your bags and explore our indie retailers.
In Great Dunmow town centre, you will encounter a very different pace of life. A High Street comprised solely of independent traders Great Dunmow is proudly traditional. You’ll find award winning florists, handmade jewellery and luxurious homewares. Wine stores and gift shops, butchers and pet stores. Ladies will be spoilt for choice with numerous stylish boutiques alongside some wonderful restaurants and coffee shops. A small market takes place every Tuesday with excellent fresh fish and cheese stalls. Twice a year the town centre businesses come together to close the High Street and host a fabulous community event with live music and lots to eat and drink. Great Dunmow really is a memorable place to shop away from the usual hustle and bustle found elsewhere.
