The Byward Market is where Ottawa was born. Established by Lt-Col. John By in 1826, the Byward Market is one of Canada’s oldest and largest public markets. Saslove’s has been in this historic location since 1954 and can still be found on the same street where we started all those years ago.
Today, the Byward Market is Ottawa’s number one tourist attraction. It’s the premier destination for shopping, dining, arts, entertainment and professional services for residents and visitors. This area averages 50,000 visitors per weekend in the summer months and is home to both a local farmers’ market and artisans, as well as over 600 independent businesses.
While you’re here, why not check out some of the fun events happening in the neighbourhood? The York Street Market runs every Saturday morning and we’d love to see you there! Find out about more great events happening in the Byward Market here.
Find us at 50 Byward Market Square in downtown Ottawa, Ontario.
