is a curated destination experience within a walkable area of our city, creating a community of authentic, local retail + design culture.



This month's feature member is Miss Browns.

Miss Browns is a Design Quarter Winnipeg member because We believe in great tasting food done simply. We are a brunch spot in The Exchange, specializing in house smoked meats, from briskets to pulled pork, house ham and sausages! Our shop is designed and built by co-owner Steve Tynell, who has a degree in Fine Arts and is a painter, designer and furniture maker. We hope to feature more works by Steve and other local artists!

There are a lot of great changes and new developments happening in our Downtown communities right now… and we want to make sure locals + visitors are familiar with navigating it all. Throughout the Summer on First Fridays in the Exchange, our POP UP BOX shipping container in Bijou Park (East side of Old Market Square) will become the public's go-to spot to learn about just that!
