A lively neighborhood known for its vibrant mix of restaurants, shops, and street vendors, offering a diverse range of cultural experiences.

Tips from the community

In the heart of Ottawa, the Byward Market is a thriving hub of more than 600 specialty shops, street stalls, bakeries, and restaurants. It’s Canada’s oldest public market, dating back to 1826 (meaning it’s actually older than the country itself). During summer, you can find fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers on the street, which complement the main market hall. By the evening, the market is filled with street performers, catering to those visiting the rustic taverns and fine dining establishments.
