About Us

Mercado General is a lifestyle boutique located in Bathurst, New Brunswick; home to a wide collection of carefully – and consciously – curated products for your home, body and soul. We invite you to stop by, say hi, and discover the highest quality Canadian products from skin care, jewelry, housewares, cannabis accessories, coffee and teas, stationery, and gifts for your friends and family.

Our charming store is a safe and inclusive space; lovingly designed and shaped for an inviting and leisurely shopping experience. Our hope is to showcase some of Canada’s best makers, and we're excited to bring their works to the Chaleur Region and beyond.

Values in Action

At Mercado General, we're more than just a brand—we're a community guided by core values. Our diverse range of products reflects our commitment to sustainability, ethical production, and the empowerment of entrepreneurs from underrepresented communities. Almost all of our vendors are Canadian artisans and small businesses, reducing our environmental impact while supporting our local economy and championing fair labor practices. Join us in making a difference with every purchase.

Meet the Founders

Nadine (accountant and admin extraordinaire) and Zoé (creative director and brains behind the visuals) founded Mercado General in June 2021 with the vision of bringing quality, meaningful goods to Bathurst and to re-energize the downtown area. This step-mother-step-daughter duo are an unlikely pair with complimentary skills and a mutual dedication to supporting and uplifting their community. They believe the Chaleur Region has incredible potential and are thrilled to contribute to it.
