Fast Facts

The historic ByWard 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. 

Did You Know?

  • There has been an open air market in this area since the 1840s. 
  • As a popular gathering place for people, it is not surprising that the ByWard Market was the scene of one of the worst breakdowns in public order in the town's history. In 1849, the infamous "Stoney Monday" riot caused the death of one man and injuries to many others. Supporters of two political parties fought over a planned visit of the Governor General with fists, stones, vegetables and small firearms. 
  • The ByWard Market's many nineteenth century buildings and cobblestone courtyards lend a historic ambiance to the area.
Come to the Market!

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. 

The beautiful stone buildings along the Mile of History on Sussex Drive house elegant stores. Outdoor cafés can be found in the tranquil cobblestone courtyards tucked behind the gracious old buildings.

At the edge of the Market stands the Cathedral-Basilica of Notre Dame. This magnificent church holds more than 200 statues carved by many of the same sculptors who worked on the Parliament Buildings.
