My Favourite Local Shops in Ottawa

Ottawa has always been a great place to find unique locally owned businesses, but in recent years it seems as though they have multiplied with a magnitude of support behind them! Amazing! Here are some of my favourite local shops across Ottawa:

Jacobson’s Gourmet Concepts
