Dorset Village is home to a wonderful selection of shops which make for a perfect destination.
Some of our favorites include the world famous J.K. Adams woodcrafts and kitchen store known to draw crowds from across the region. Don’t stop there! Mettowee Mill Nursery, our fabulous nursery and garden shop, can turn anyone into a green thumb, and no visit would be complete without stopping at the H.N. Williams Store, a 6th generation family-run country store where you can find everything from designer clothes to worms! Don’t forget to visit the Dorset Farmers Market if you are here on a Sunday — year round!
Our neighbor to the south, the town of Manchester, has plenty to offer in its over 40 boutique designer stores. An outdoor shopping experience easily accomplished on foot, Manchester Designer Outlets have all the usual suspects like J.Crew, Ann Taylor and Ralph Lauren plus a few surprises. Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Armani are here as well as Eileen Fisher, Tumi and Marimekko.
Scattered in between the standard outlets are Vermont artisan shops, specialty food shops, gourmet supply stores like The Vermont Kitchen Supply Store and a DTF favorite, local lingerie shop Joy All Things Underthings. Manchester’s popular consignment shop, Zippy Chicks is not to be missed! Need accessories? Hop over to The Gold Trout in Granville for some gorgeous accessories and gifts. Finish off your visit with all things outdoors at Orvis and then reward yourself with some homemade world famous buttercrunch from Mother Myricks Confectionary.
