“A must!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Every time I visit Merrickville I stop in at McGarrigle's. While my purchases were less this trip, I only needed one bag, the selection of goods available is fantastic. Known for their mustards, which they ship around the world, the shop also carries sauces, British teas, cooking and kitchen gadgets and utensils, cheese, chocolate and imported candy. As you walk around the store, be sure to take advantages of the samples that are out. I have found many a delicious gift to buy that way.

“The anchor store in Merrickville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Mrs. McGarrigle's is known for their store made mustard which ships around the world. It is very good mustard, but there is a lot more than mustard in the store. They stock lots of chocolate, cheese and other high end foods. They also have a Friday night take out dinner prepared by a well known local chef. This is quite popular with the locals. You need to order a few days ahead, but it is a nice way to bring home a good meal and a very reasonable price.

It's easy to see why this store continues to attract people to journey to Merrickville

“What a great little shop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Loads of little samples as you walk around. Lots of delicious condiments and cool "stuff". A fun shop to browse and to buy in!

Also a good selection of British treats!

“A spot that really CAN cut the mustard!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

Travelling to Merrickville is always a treat, there are always so many small shops to see. For history buffs the lock ruins are a must, lots of boutiques for the artiste and the fashionista in the family, and for the gourmand in tow this IS the place to visit. They have so many unique and flavourful products to choose from. Tons of delectable mustards, coffees, sweets and spices to choose from, you can be sure you won't go away empty handed!! The staff are always friendly and there is a lot of room to poke around at your own pace. Just when you think you have seen enough there is still the upstairs floor with plenty of treasures waiting for you to explore!! When you there be sure and try the white wine mustard, it's a favourite of ours here at home.
Bon appetit!!!!!!!!!!!!
