CANADA ~ By Ward Market - Ottowa - Ontario ~

... Lovely view of one of the largest and longest-running farmers’ markets in Canada, ... and oldest food market in Ottawa ... a historic landmark in the heart of the city with stalls inside and out....the market offers a variety of Canadian products and foods from all over...  this area has an averages of 50.000 visitors per weekend in the summer months... Thanks a lot Glenn!!【ツ】
The By Ward Market was established by Lieutenant-Colonel John By in 1826. Traditionally, the By Ward Market area has been a focal point for Ottawa's French and Irish communities.

The name refers to the old 'By Ward' of the City of Ottawa ('By' deriving from the surname of the engineer, Colonel John By, who was the area's original surveyor). The district comprises the main commercial part of the historic Lower Town area of Ottawa.
