ByWard Market (sometimes called By Ward Market, Byward Market or simply The Market, Marché By in French) is a district in downtown Ottawa, Ontario located east of the government & business district, surrounding the market buildings and open-air market on George, York, ByWard and William Streets.

The district is bordered on the west by Sussex Drive, on the east by Cumberland Street. It stretches northwards to Cathcart Street, while to the south it is bordered by Rideau Street [1]. 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.

The market itself is Canada's oldest continuously operating farmers' market,[citation needed] regulated by the City of Ottawa's Markets Management group, which also operates the smaller west-end Parkdale Market. The market building is open year-round, and open-air stalls are operated in the warmer months offering fresh produce and flowers. (Wikipedia)
