The village, where my cottage is located, is very peaceful and sleepy. Amenities in the village include, a convenience store with an LCBO outlet (limited selection of beer, wine and spirits), a small museum (seasonal only), a marina (seasonal only), and a beach allowing access to the Ottawa River for swimming and water activities. Just a few minutes away, you'll find groceries, the main LCBO (larger selection of booze), a few restaurants, fast food, some shops, a hardware store and a garden centre. The village is unique because it is named after the many moose that used to inhabit the region, and is highlighted by a large moose, as you drive into this sleepy hollow.

Vankleek Hill Farmers' Market
The market is held Saturdays during the summer months, usually from mid-June until mid-September. Best to get there in the morning. A dynamic market, constantly changing. The commitment to locally produced, quality products makes the Vankleek Hill Farmers’ Market the perfect place to talk to farmers who actually raise the products they bring to market, and the processors and crafters who are passionate about the quality of what they offer. A great morning out.
