If you live in Ottawa and are looking for something to do on the weekend, I recommend going to the Market. For those of you not familiar with the Market (Byward Market) it’s located behind the Rideau Centre in downtown Ottawa.
The centre building in the Market area is known as the Byward Market Mall. It has a variety of different shops, bakeries and restaurants. Surrounding the mall are tons of vendors selling everything. You can find art, clothing, jewelry or fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers. That’s just to name a few things.
The market is also a great place to hang out day or night because of the number of restaurants and bars. On a nice day you’ll find the patios filled with people (families too) grabbing a bite to eat or maybe just people watching. If you’re looking for some new furniture you’ll find a couple or great stores too.
