Welcome to The ByWard Market

The ByWard Market is Ottawa’s premier destination for shopping, dining, arts, entertainment and professional services for residents and visitors. This area averages 50,000 visitors per weekend in the summer months.  It is home to both a local farmers’ market and artisans with over 260 stands, as well as over 600 businesses. In 2017, the ByWard Market will play host to the almost 10 million visitors expected to visit the Nation’s Capital.

What time are we open?

Great question! Outdoor vendors typically set up for 9 a.m. and will close around 5 p.m., depending on the weather. There are also over 600 unique businesses in the Market, all responsible for their own hours of operation. Contact them directly for hours of operation to best plan your visit.
