Our popular Honest Shop was initiated by local arts organisation Grizedale Arts, and opened in 2012. It is not staffed, is cash only with no facility to give change, and payment is made via an “honesty box”

The Shop stocks a wide range of local produce and locally made products which are either hand-made, home grown or home baked. These include seasonal fruit, vegetables and flowers, knitted and craft items, slate, jewellery and the ever popular home baking.

75% of the sale income goes to the producers and 25% goes to The Institute towards the upkeep and development of premises.

If you are feeling creative, live in the locality and would like to earn a little extra money, please contact us to find out how to sell via The Honest Shop

Open daily from 9am to 5pm
