ByWard Market, Ottawa

4.1
#1 of 26 in Shopping in Ottawa
Arguably the city’s number one tourist attraction, historical ByWard Market offers an eclectic mix of shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and nightclubs. Reconciling contrasts such as secluded courtyards and bustling streets, a local farmers' market and artisans’ stands, the market is the city's leading destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Walk between outdoor stalls with fresh flowers, fruits, and vegetables., then look for local trend-setting artworks. Stop by a little teashop and experience the small neighborhood feel. The market is also home to museums, specialty food shops, hair and beauty salons, and over 500 businesses.
