Welcome to Pickering Village

Downtown Pickering Village

Along Ajax’s only historic main street, Old Kingston Road, you can’t miss the sight of Pickering Village. Originally a Quaker settlement, Pickering Village is home to a group of historic Tudor-style buildings arranged around a courtyard, now housing businesses from an ice cream shop to a hair salon. Pickering Village, settled in 1807, still contains many original buildings: The Gordon House, built in 1881, was a hotel known for its excellent food; Casa Verde, an Italian restaurant is housed in an 1890 building that originally served as a birthing house, and later as a rum runners hideout. For more than a decade Pickering Village has been home to JamFest, an annual summer music festival.

Now, more than ever, Pickering Village’s local culinary businesses have become the heart of our community.
