Fergie’s Bakery and Convenience

Inside this community grocery store and bakery, a huge selection of fresh breads, pastries and pies await you. The specialty breads — like the raisin cinnamon or bacon and cheese loaves — are delicious, but the sweeter options are really the go-to orders here. Try the famous apple fritters or one of the homemade apple, pecan or maple pies. If you prefer the savoury route, there’s also a traditional tourtière, which is a French meat pie filled with warm spices and ground meat.

This French-inspired bakery serves up an excellent array of sweet and savoury breads and pastries. The menu at Le Fournil is seasonal and can change daily depending on what’s available. Grab a traditionally made baguette and a can of foie gras terrine for a delicious picnic in the mountains, or opt for one of the many pastries, like the salted caramel chocolate tart, if you’re looking for something sweeter.
