"Byward Market" Byward Market Tip by Lisser

Byward Market, Ottawa: 35 reviews and 86 photos


I've heard this place described many times as Ottawa's ultimate "tourist trap". Well I guess they got me then, because I really loved this place!
Byward Market has a wide range of restaurants from fast food to exotic, as well as bars and night clubs. I saw my first Hooters in Byward Market :P Trendy boutiques and other shops line the streets as well as a mall on one corner. In the summer, it draws many street performers and has a real market -- where you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables.

Directions: Bordered by Sussex, St. Patrick, Rideau, and King Edward
