North Grenville is home to many talented artists, artisans and crafters.

There must be something in that fresh air and nature that keeps the creative juices flowing. We invite you to slow down and explore all that we have to offer.

Begin at local coffee house Brewed Awakenings for a fresh cup of coffee and grab a house-made sandwich for a picnic lunch.

Hop back in the car for a short drive to the Kemptville Crafters' Market where you will find a variety of handmade goods made by local crafters and artisans. Feeling inspired to start your own craft project? The Kemptville Fabric Shoppe is just around the corner and it’s well-stocked with quality sewing, quilting and knitting supplies!

On your way out of town, stop in at Geraldine’s Gallery and take in the extensive collection of local, national and international art, which is tastefully curating in a serene heritage home.

Buckle up and savour the scenic country roads on the way to Oxford Mills. Unpack your picnic lunch at the park near the historic Maplewood Hall then put your feet up and enjoy the sights and sounds of spring.

Stretch your legs with a relaxed stroll through the village to admire the historic homes and churches, and revel in the natural beauty of the dam and the stream. Don’t forget to check out Olde Porch Primitives, a treasure trove of handmade signs, reproductions of historic light fixtures, and other rustic finds.

Feeling hungry after all that wholesome country air? It’s time for the pièce de résistance – dinner at The Brigadoon. With fine dining, cozy setting, and top notch service, reservations are recommended for this not-so-hidden gem. Housed in a historic stone building and featuring the Alpaca Tracks gift boutique, the Brigadoon is a treat for all five senses. For a complete listing of North Grenville’s dining options, please consult our where to eat map. You’ll find options ranging from fine dining to drive-thru…and everything in between!
