Topsham Business Supporters

Topsham means business – but not the the look-alike sound-alike businesses you are familiar with in so many other places.

Our town thrives on independent businesses run almost entirely by local residents. Some create and sell unique artisan products from their shops, while others operate businesses from offices, former maritime warehouses and quite a few lofts throughout Topsham.

Together they create a distinct community of businesses serving local residents but also loving the attention of visitors throughout the year.

Whether it’s Michelin-commended restaurants and fresh food shops, beautiful pre-loved items from books to fashion, homeware or stunning pieces of art, they can all be found in Topsham – and there’s a lot more besides. Meanwhile behind the scenes there are wellness experts to business consultants, gardeners to builders, sailmakers to artists.

Many of these businesses, big and small, are our supporters – they’re the ones listed here – so it’s always worth mentioning our name in case there’s an offer available for  Love Topsham Cardholders. 

But whether you’re a regular or a visitor, here for a lifetime or just a few hours, we cannot recommend highly enough these community-minded entrepreneurs who make Topsham so special.
