There are no chain stores on Block Island. There are, however, lots of one-of-a-kind shops offering everything from antiques to t- shirts.

Shopping

The island’s shops form an adventure all their own.

Pick out a memento or Block Island-themed sweatshirt as a keepsake from your island vacation at one of the charming gift shops; or browse for fine art or pottery in the downtown’s many galleries.

Only steps away from the ferry dock in Old Harbor is the heart of Block Island’s historic downtown. Most island stores are mom and pop businesses and the range of items offered is truly astounding. Homemade honey and candles vie for space with designer handbags and fashionable bathing suits and board shorts. Forget something? Not a problem. There are a host of choices to hook you up with everything from fishing and surfing gear to sunscreen and paperback books.

In addition to the shopping in town, there are farmers’ markets where island artists, chefs and farmers gather each Wednesday and Saturday morning to sell their wares. It’s a great way to pick up locally grown produce, home-baked goodies, locally made preserves, handcrafted jewelry, and much more.

Local artists and craftsmen show at the many galleries that dot the downtown, during the Arts and Crafts Guild shows hosted on the Historical Society lawn each season, and at farmers’ markets every Wednesday and Saturday morning. Be sure to pencil in the Christmas Stroll for late fall: During the Thanksgiving Day weekend, island stores open their doors and offer dynamite discounts just in time for the holidays.
