Description : 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.
The historic market is a colourful mosaic of farmers market stalls, shops, galleries, cafés and clubs just east of Parliament Hill. It,s a popular place during the day for strolling and shopping, or at night for an evening,s entertainment. You,ll find a bustling centre with restaurants serving food from around the world, shops specializing in arts, crafts and other unique products, fresh farm produce, and nightclubs for those eager to dance the night away.
