Residents of Manette have access to big box stores, such as Grocery Outlet, right in the neighborhood or within a short drive over the bridge to West Bremerton.
If you want something a little more local, Island Flavors offers the convenience of a speciality grocery store and small Filipino restaurant all rolled into one. The Bremerton Farmer's Market operates two days a week from early summer into late fall at Evergreen Park. Offering goods from around the Peninsula, the farmers market acts as the most popular choice for local produce.
If locals are willing to drive, there exist opportunities for both name brand and boutique shopping on the Kitsap Peninsula. Kitsap Mall, a two-story shopping mall, sits in downtown Bremerton, but most locals prefer the wider variety of choices offered by South Kitsap Mall in Port Orchard, about 20 minutes south of Manette. For more in-depth trips, residents take the ferry to Seattle and enjoy the bountiful shopping opportunities the city provides.
Downtown Bremerton houses some unique stores and specialty shops, and because of the city's push to rejuvenate downtown, most shopping is localized and easily accessible on foot. Purpose Boutique, a crowd favorite, offers unique women's clothing and jewelry, personalized styling recommendations, and reasonable prices for brands not otherwise found on the Peninsula. Purpose also gives back to organizations that seek to empower women, so you can shop while making a difference.
Ish Vintage Clothing and Costumes delights customers with style from days passed. The store offers well-curated, gently used clothing to buy as well as costumes to rent for special events. Plan to spend some time browsing the racks of this store, and check back often, the merchandize is ever-changing.
