Fodor's Expert Review Maison J. A. Moisan

Outside the Old City Store/Mall Fodor's Choice
Store, Maison J. A. Moisan, Quebec City, Canada

Founded in 1871 by Jean-Alfred Moisan, this place claims the title of the oldest continuously operating grocery store in North America. The original display cases, woodwork, and tin ceilings preserve the old-time feel. The store sells hard-to-find products from various regions of Québec, including cheeses, charcuterie, and some outstanding local ales. The original owner's upstairs home has now been turned into a classic B&B with all the trimmings.
