ByWard Market (sometimes called By Ward Market, Byward Market or simply The Market, Marché By in French) is a district in Lower Town (Ottawa, Ontario) located east of the government and 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 and Mackenzie Avenue, on the east by Cumberland Street. It stretches northwards to Cathcart Street, while to the south it is bordered by Rideau Street. The name refers to the old 'By Ward' of the City of Ottawa ('By' deriving from the surname of the engineer, Lt-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. According to the Canada 2011 Census, the population of the area was 3,063.The market itself is regulated by a City of Ottawa municipal services corporation named Marchés d'Ottawa Markets, which also operates the smaller west-end Parkdale Market. The corporation is run by a nine member board of directors. The market building is open year-round, and open-air stalls are operated in the warmer months offering fresh produce and flowers.
