Shopping in Almonte
The charming town of Almonte, just west of Ottawa, is a popular shopping destination and we have adapted well to serving customers during the Covid crisis. The eclectic variety of businesses in downtown Almonte makes it easy to find quality items for yourself and for gifts.
At Pêches & Poivre we make shopping safe and easy, with online order forms for many of our most popular items, curbside pickup and local delivery options, and an exceptional selection of food and kitchen items.
If you’re looking for something in particular and aren’t sure if we have it, please feel free to contact us and we’ll help.
We also stock a lovely selection of cards, are ready to wrap any item beautifully, and have lots of small treats to tuck into any gift package.

Quote from Expedia’s article on Small Towns: “Shoppers! Not that we need to convince you to buy more clothes, but perhaps we can direct you to a shopping district you may not have splurged through yet: downtown Almonte, Ontario. Voted as one of the best small towns in Ontario (and Canada at large), this former mill town is now known for their boutiques and art galleries dotting the 19th century-style downtown.”
Quote from Cottage Life article: “People flock to Almonte for the unique shopping on Mill Street where they can browse boutiques, search for antiques, and dine at some really interesting local restaurants. “
Quote from Travel Mammal: “Be forewarned – Almonte is one of the only places that may willingly force you to enter every store. I love towns like this – you can actually see the collective effort from everyone in the community, to beautify the community. Local pride is tangible, everywhere and it shows.”
