Walking into 639 Queen Street East, you’ll be instantly enveloped by a warmth that is familiar to many—an aroma that represents an ode to tradition and a testament to the joys that simplicity brings.  Mary MacLeod’s shortbread is one of the businesses that will be participating in Culinary Walk, during the 4th Annual Take a Walk on the Riverside.

Mary MacLeods

Sharon Macleod was kind enough to speak with me about the history of Mary MacLeod’s, and share some delicious shortbread as well.

Mary MacLeod’s has been in the Riverside District since 1997, and Mary herself has been making shortbread since 1981.  The mission of Mary MacLeod’s shortbread is to make the highest quality shortbread available in Canada.  I can attest to both the variety and delectability of the shortbread available.  By sourcing the highest quality ingredients and experimenting with new ways of reinventing shortbread Mary ensures that her customers keep coming back for more!

Mary MacLeod will be giving away free cookies on Saturday, October 20 during the Culinary Walk.  On the walk, you can learn more about the history of Mary MacLeod’s Shortbread, enjoy some delicious treats and maybe even meet Mary herself.

Find out more about Mary Macleod’s before the walk by visiting the shops website.
