Brechfa Community Stores is a village shop in the centre of the village which provides a wide range of food and drink. You can buy local meat and cheese and fair trade products as well as staple food and drink. It is manned by volunteers and is open from 7 until 6 weekdays and 7 to 1pm on saturdays. There is a free to use cash machine in the store.

There is a range of high street stores and supermarkets in Carmarthen which is a 15 minute drive away.

The nearest petrol station is at White Mill, on the A40 towards Carmarthen, approximately 8 miles from Gilfach Wen.
