Dining in Kingston, Ontario

Dining & Shopping in Downtown Kingston, Ontario

Shopping Options near Our Hotel

While there are plenty of outdoor activities in the area, many people like to spend a day or two just enjoying the Kingston area shopping. There's plenty to choose from, including three malls. The Cataraqui mall has 141 stores to enjoy, The RioCan center has 75 merchants, and the King Court mall contains new outlet stores.

For a visitor to Kingston, the shopping is really all about the downtown. For a small city of just over 125,000, it's surprising to see so many interesting independents mixed in with cool chains like Urban Outfitters, Jump+, and Lulu Lemon. Skip the big box stores and take a stroll along Princess Street starting at Division Street headed towards the water. It's about a 30-minute walk that could last an entire day just looking in all of the unique shops Kingston has to offer! Don't forget to visit the historic market square every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday for local produce and crafts. We especially recommend these local favorites:

  • Tara Foods - Natural and Organic Food Store
  • Agent 99 - Where All the Starlet Types Shop
  • Pam's Flowers - Amazing Floral Shop
  • Heel Boy - Original Location that Dpawned the Toronto Queen Street location
  • Go Green Baby - Gifts and Clothing for the Well-Dressed Infant
  • Happy Thoughts - One-of-a-Kind Gifts
  • Sepp's Ski and Snowboard - A Local Institution
  • Rocking Horse - Toys for Thinking Minds
  • James Reid Furniture - Downtown for over 150 Years
  • Downtown Kingston Boutiques - Association of More than 700 Businesses
  • King’s Crossing Fashion Outlets - Outlet Mall with All Your Favorites
