Acton is a small town but it still boasts many independent businesses to consider when you have shopping to do. It offers many dining options, Spas and Beauty services and some great shopping. If you are visiting the downtown you could stop in at the Holland Shop and pick up some delicious food, or perhaps some treats from Sweet Molly’s. Head over to What the Dicken’s Books & Curios to expand your knowledge base and then maybe head down the road to the Starlight Café or Roxy Coffee for a break with your new book.

Lets not forget the shopping attraction that has made Acton popular with the slogan “Its worth the drive to Acton” , The Olde Hide House. This unique shopping experience offers an unrivalled selection of luxurious leather, suede, wool, down and shearling fashions and accessories. Plus a large selection of leather furniture.

When your done your shopping at The Olde Hide House you can cross the street for food or a drink at Tanners Pub & Grill. The pub has a great menu and often has live entertainment! If the weather is warm you can snag a seat out on the patio and watch the band perform from the “Garage” stage out back.

If your looking to do your groceries don’t forget about the Farmers Market that takes place on Thursday evenings from June until October between 3 & 7pm you can visit your local vendors at the farmers market to get your fresh produce.
