“Small town gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Whether it's for a gift or for yourself, Mrs. McGarrigle's has great food items. Best known for mustards, you can find a great selection of cooking utensils, specialty teas, and even picture frames. With free samples, this shop gives you the latitude to buy what you want and to give a gift that is consumed eagerly rather than put on a shelf and forgotten.

“Great service and selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I love the variety of British products available at Mrs. McGarrigle's (especially the Jaffa cakes!). There is also a great selection of homemade cheeses and a variety of pesto's, mustard's and other delicatessens. The staff are always pleasant and the location is great for a little day trip from the Ottawa or Ogdensburg area.

Spices, mixes, unique items. Great selection of "not-found-at-your-grocery-store" items!
Thanks for the garlic mashed seasoning as well as the veggie-dip seasoning!!

“If they don't have what you want, it does not exist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

This is one of the most comprehensive kitchen stores in Eastern Ontario - and beyond. The selection of condiments, exotic and special foods is extensive. They have kitchen gadgets I have not found elsewhere, organizing products, practical and elegant table ware and candies - too many items to remember! I love to wander around the store and find new and useful products for my home, and unusual gifts. A must visit store, if you go to Merrickville.

“a taste of England”

Time travel experience. Step back into jolly old England. Village stores on the High Street. An incredibly extensive selection of jams, cheeses, crackers, and other sundry foods. Sample some of the special features.
