Monkland Avenue is the main hub for Montreal’s trendy Notre-Dame-de-Grâce neighbourhood. Well-known for its amazing selection of bars and restaurants, this hot spot also shouldn’t be overlooked for its trendy shops, all of which offer a little something for everyone.
A popular home décor shop, Zone is a one-stop boutique for trendy, outside-the-box additions to your home. They have all the regular things you want, such as sofas, ottomans, console desks and tables, but designed to be up to date with the latest trends, without being prohibitively expensive. Their lighting solutions are especially popular, with lamps made of stone and industrial style light bulbs that can utterly transform any living space.
If you’re a skiing enthusiast, or simply want to know what equipment to buy if you’re looking to take it up as a new hobby, you couldn’t ask for a more helpful place than Monkland’s Austrian Ski Shop. In business for fifty years, they also do repairs and offer a wide range of skis and accessories, along with the expertise to make sure you leave with all the equipment you need.
A relatively new bakery which opened in October 2017, the shop has already amassed a wide, devoted clientele, with it being an especially popular spot on the weekends where locals show up en masse to sample their delicious breads and pastries. Take note; they’re closed Monday and Tuesday!
A popular butcher shop, this is the perfect place to hit on your way home from work if you’re looking to spice up dinner with a perfect cut of meat. Conveniently, they also sell a wide variety of pre-marinated meats, along with a terrific selection of fresh vegetables and ready-made meals, plus a top-notch choice of delicious cheeses.
And if by chance they don’t have what you need, simply walk down the street a few blocks to:
Ecollegey – The Real Green Grocer
Monkland’s best organic food grocery store sells fresh produce, as well as meats, poultry and seafood – all certified organic. Ecollogey also offers a variety of in house prepared foods, such as their house hummus, made from scratch in their kitchen. If you can’t make it to the store, you can now order online and have the freshest, organic items delivered straight to your door!
