Explore Shopping

See our Natural Shopitat

Start with a stroll through downtown Peterborough, whose Victorian streets are alive with one-of-a-kind stores, independent merchants and the latest eateries. Smaller towns, such as Lakefield and Millbrook, offer a taste of shopping in a traditional village setting. And out of town, the road leads to dozens of possibilities: artists’ studios, antique barns, and much more. Take a piece of Peterborough & the Kawarthas home with you.
