Hamlet of Shakespeare

Shakespeare, a unique hamlet of antiques, crafts and artisan foods

The Hamlet of Shakespeare, situated 10 mins east of Stratford, has a North America wide reputation for its quality antique shops and informed dealers and appraisers ranging from silver to Asian antiquities to Canadiana. It Is an antique lovers mecca with over half-dozen quality shops within a one block radius. A wide range of one-of -a-kind collectables, from 19th century Ontario pine furniture to European and Asian curios, will tempt you.

Shakespeare also has many fine food shops from Mennonite pastries to cheeses and one of the best purveyors of meats in southern Ontario - you can't miss The Best Little Pork Shoppe with its oversized pig mascot in the front yard and its excellent selection of locally made specially foods. Other shops offer a wide range of unique crafted items created by local artisans and artists including Mennonite and Amish Quilts and a wide range of one-of-kind keepsakes.
