"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. The legendary builder of the Rideau Canal; Lt-Col. By himself laid out the street plan of the Market, designating George and York Streets to be extra wide to accommodate the horse-drawn carriages that brought foodstuffs to the market every day."Miss Iggy made sure to drop by this popular tourist attraction in Ottawa. There's a lot to learn about a city's culture and lifestyle just by visiting their public markets.
