Important Notice

Talaton Community Shop

We are really struggling to keep the shop staffed

We know that having a shop is a great asset for the village and we are enormously proud to have been serving the community since 1994 but we are very much dependant on a small group of dedicated and willing volunteers who keep the shop open day in and day out, seven days a week all year round. This small group is being stretched to the limit right now with many volunteers doing 2 or 3 shifts a week or even more. The management committee are often scrabbling around trying to find a volunteer to keep the shop open the next day and after all our time and effort, we usually do it ourselves. Clearly, we need more volunteers.

Can you spare 2 hours a week?

Or help us out as and when you can?

If so, please contact Val Blake 07708 233995 or Trish Lenehan 822890

Unless we get more volunteers we will have no option other than to close the shop during the hours that we can’t staff it



Village ShopComing to stay in Talaton? Why not save space in the car by ordering all, or some of your shopping with us in advance? No minimum order or "starter pack" - just tell us what you want and we can get it. Collection from the shop or free delivery. Contact us at or Tel 01404 822084 to place your order.

A few days notice is all we require, however, please give a minimum of 2 weeks notice for large orders that may include goods we don't normally stock.

All orders will be acknowledged and collection / delivery arrangements confirmed.

Fabulous Fruit & Veg is on sale from the outdoor display area. Take a look at the fantastic quality and great prices!

Or if you prefer, place your order by 3pm on Thursday for delivery the next day. It will be available to collect after 12 noon on Friday

Customer Recommendation for

Black Bin Bags -10 for £1.75

“they are top quality and really strong”

It’s great to hear praise from a satisfied customer for one of our top selling lines. Forget the flimsy bags sold on a roll - these are the real deal!

Our supplier is a sole trader from Honiton with whom we’ve done business for nearly 20 years. A Community Shop supports both its Customers AND Suppliers





 The Shop at the Beautiful Days Music Festival 2017


Once again the Shop was invited to be at the Beautiful Days Music Festival in Escot park and it was a huge success, in no small part due to the wonderful voluntary helpers. The annual event brings much needed funds to the shop - probably quite a lot of fun for the helpers too ! Huge thanks are deserved by all those who help in this annual visit to the show.
