“What a great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

If you are in Merrickville, you must give this shop a look. It is incredible. You can go crazy picking out mustards, and they are all wonderful. The staff can help you choose just the right flavour for your meal.

But that's just the beginning. They have an extensive selection of imported foods, oils, chocolates and just about everything you can think of...then think some more. You really have to see it to appreciate it.

“A store full of flavours, waiting to be explored”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

If you were to imagine a store that was one continuous temptation of your tastebuds, Mrs McGarrigle's would be it. Flavours, tastes, kitchen utensils, tools.....everything to make your cooking more fun and the food burst with flavour. Add courteous and friendly staff and it becomes a "we have to stop there" every time you are even close to Merrickville.

Best bet: the store's own line of mustards and marinades -- delicious!

“Great Selection of Local Foods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

Nice, old-style store with plenty of free samples. The mustards and jams are magnificent, and there is an amazing assosrtment of imported and local foods. The service can be a bit slow, but this is laregely due to the number of people trying to check out. A must-visit, if you are in Merrickville.
