What could be better after a big clean than lighting a beautiful candle from Doozy Candle? Continue your shopping spree at La Petite Grocerie: fashion accessories, soaps and beauty products, specialty foods, and much more. 

Reorganize your pantry

It’s time to clear out your cupboards and stock up on ingredients for your new spring recipes. 

Make your first stop at the boutique of Les Fougères restaurant for local produce or a frozen seasonal dish. At La Trappe à fromage, pick up a fresh cheese, a new spice or a tasty marinade. Then head to the Marché de l’Outaouais online grocery store to order local vegetables, meats and a variety of other foods. 

To round out your shopping trip, head to one of the Outaouais’ fine food stores, and grab a beer to go at one of the region’s microbreweries. 

Update your wardrobe

Spring is all about bright colours, fun patterns and light fabrics! It’s time to visit Outaouais thrift stores and trade in your winter clothes. Head to the Habitude Design thrift store to give designer pieces a second life. Take advantage of the opportunity to discover a wide range of Canadian products. A few times a year, Canevas also organises La Grande Fripe, a pop-up thrift store that’s popular with fashion enthusiasts. 

The Outaouais is full of little hidden places where you can find affordable clothes. Visit Friperie l’entre 2, Friperie Notre-Dame, Friperie Chez Touss’Ki or the Renaissance boutique.
