Byward Market in Ottawa

Established by Lt-Col. John By in 1826, the ByWard Market in Ottawa is one of Canada's oldest and largest public markets. The legendary builder of the Rideau Canal, Colonel By, laid out the street plan of the Market. Within an area roughly four blocks square, you'll find museums, caf├ęs, specialty food shops, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants.

Here are a few pictures taken at this very busy area.

Don't you love the colour?

Herbs for the garden

Lots of flowers

My favourite place
