This First Nations emporium sells every Native American item you can think of, with items from Southwest U.S. Navajos as well as Québecois and British Columbian tribes: bear-tooth pendants, moccasins, Indian rugs, rabbit-fur hats, and a wealth of shamanic drums, dream-catchers, rattles, and chimes. The traditional Inuit sculptures are carved from bone and ivory from marine mammals as well as stone. The figures—hunters, fishermen, and mothers with their babies—are very simple, which only makes them all the more compelling.

Open 10 am to 9 pm daily, June to early September; 10 am to 5 pm daily, early September to May.

In business since 1871, this atmospheric, old-fashioned shop in an early-1800s building in the lower town claims to be the oldest grocery store in North America. The courteous, knowledgeable servers will be happy to answer your questions about the various delicacies on sale, such as Québecois cheese and pâté of Arctic caribou with mushrooms. Don't feel self-conscious about prolonged browsing: It's encouraged. Buy picnic fixings and enjoy them on the Promenade des Gouverneurs or Terrasse Dufferin.

Open 9 am to 9 pm daily.
