Blanc Mouton is a favorite with women. For over 40 years, founders Nicole Vincent and Pierre Dugré have shared the same passion, namely, to present their customers with original collections at affordable prices. They've passed this passion on to their daughter Marie-Pier, who also scours craft shows in search of unique styles and exclusive products.
What makes the boutique so special is that its owners craft their own collection of clothing, available exclusively at Blanc Mouton! Entirely handmade and primarily from natural fibers, the exclusive collection features several key pieces that are customer favorites for their variety of colors and timeless appeal.
In addition to their in-house collection, the owners also offer several lines by Québec designers and artisans, including the Rien ne se perd, tout se crée collection.
European inspirations and Québec creations, quality fabrics, affordable prices… you’ll find it all! The fashion consultants who work there love helping out shoppers and have a keen eye for finding the perfect outfit to suit your body type.

La Nougaterie offers its delicious nougat as well as a vast range of artisanal sweets. You'll find meringue, marshmallow, honey moons, spreads and jams, bouchons de l'île, butters (apple, blueberry, etc.), and nougats in every shape and form. All the products are made by hand in Saint-Pierre-de-l’Île-d’Orléans.
Owners Patrick Augier and Caroline Marelli, who both hail from Europe, form a great team both at work and in life. They are truly passionate about confectionery, and have been involved in the cooking and pastry business for over 35 years.
They have lived in the province of Québec since 2006, and opened their first boutique, Ô Petites Douceurs du Quartier, two years later. It featured local products, made-in-Québec creations, and, as the name suggests, "little sweets.” They subsequently decided to develop their own recipes, and the store was renamed La Nougaterie Québec and relocated to Île d'Orléans to further develop production. Since then, the owners have been lovingly concocting their sweet treats with the help of Cécile, their master confectioner and chocolatier.
THE HISTORY OF NOUGAT
A soft and creamy confection dating back to the days of Antiquity, nougat is made from egg whites, honey, and almonds. Back then, it was made in the Orient with almonds, honey, and spices. Nougat was also known to the Greeks, who made it with walnuts.
Various varieties, hard and soft alike, have appeared over the years. Real nougat, i.e., nougat as we know it today, appeared in the mid-18th century. Egg whites, melted together with honey and sugar, were added to lighten the dough.
This storied product can be sampled today at La Nougaterie in the Petit Champlain district.
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’re in for a real treat. The display counters are teeming with chocolates, nougats, and, of course, fudge—the company’s signature product!
Over the years, owners Jacques Thivierge and Michelle Martin have developed over 80 flavors of utterly decadent fudge!
Other delights on the menu include crème brûlée, caramel fleur de sel (everyone’s favorite!), and the unusual jalapeno pepper fudge, which pairs nicely with a glass of red wine. We kid you not! Other wine and fudge pairings are also suggested on site.
Fromagerie Ferme Audet offers a variety of artisanal products made from goat's milk from its own herd. These include delicious cheeses, soaps, and natural bodycare products made from 100% goat's milk, as well as our famous goat's milk ice cream, a one-of-a-kind product in Québec that never fails to amaze customers who try it. All of the cheesemaker’s products are made by the owners on their farm in Saint-François-de-L'Île-d'Orléans. Drop by for a free sample at the new boutique in Quartier Petit Champlain.
In 2016, Martin Audet and Annabelle Bourget launched their dairy production and processing company. Audet and Bourget are both biologists by training, and are passionate about processing goat's milk in all its shapes and forms. In 2017, they began developing high-quality natural soaps and bodycare products. Then, in 2018, they sought to develop several cheeses in association with different cheesemakers. That same year saw the inauguration of the cheese, soap, and bodycare boutique on Île d'Orléans. The following year they began construction on the cheese factory at the farm. Construction wrapped up in April 2021, and in winter 2021, they came up with the idea of a goat's milk ice cream. After multiple tests, they landed on the perfect ice cream recipe—real goat's milk with real vanilla and real Belgian chocolate. It was a first in Québec! The ice cream was introduced in the boutique in May 2021, and since then there have been nothing but satisfied customers! In the wake of the growing success of their farm products, Martin and Annabelle decided to open a new boutique featuring all their products in one place, this time in Quartier Petit Champlain in Québec City.
