A great place for shopping and strolling is 124 Street, a walkable district just north of Jasper Avenue. There you'll find boutiques, art galleries and indie shops aplenty.
A few places worth a stop include Hideout Distro (12407 108 Ave. N.W.) for well-curated gifts; The Prints and the Paper (10725 124 St.) for posters and Alberta-themed goods; and Bearclaw Gallery (10403 124 St.) for unique art made by Canadian First Nations, Metis and Inuit artists.
If you visit the district on Thursday evenings or Sunday afternoons in summer, you'll be just in time for the 124 Grand Market. It's one of the most popular farmers’ markets in town.
