Attraction details
Owner description: WITHIN an area roughly four blocks square, you'll find museums, cafes, specialty food shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants, pubs, hair & aesthetics salons and more! Easily accessible on foot, by transit or by car, the ByWard Market offers a unique experience for all. ESTABLISHED by Lt-Col. John By in 1826, the ByWard Market is one of Canada's oldest and largest public markets. The legendary builder of the Rideau Canal, Colonel By himself laid out the street plan of the Market, designating George Street and York Street to be extra wide to accommodate the creation of a public market and gathering place.

Great vibe. Great restaurants. Wonderful shops and vendors. Fun and busy nightlife (even when cold out). Single mom with 12 and 17 year old. Felt safe walking at night. Lots to see and lots great food to try.

When arriving in the city, the first place we visited was the By Ward Market, even before checking in to our hotel. The smells of the market square alone could have kept us transfixed. Food from all parts of the world were being showcased by each of the vendors, each friendly and willing to tell you about their offerings.

Apart from Le Moulin de Provence and the amazing patisseries there was so much choice. Cheese stalls, Fish stalls, plenty of food. Every visitor should take a look.
