It is much cleaner and organized than many other open markets in the US or Europe. Very nice quality food and vendors. Worth a trip.

A tremendously diverse array of fresh produce, artisanal crafts, prepared foods and people. We wish for more organic (not just lip service organic) but seeing all of these seasonal veggies on display invigorates our menu choices for the year. We took home lots of certified organic veggies and an Xposed Cake (not sure if that's the correct spelling?). We wish the market continued just so we could get more of these cakes!

The market isn't picturesque but the vendors, their wares and market goers help to distract the eye from parking lots and busy city streets. For us this market is a must!

Nice little market in the heart of the city. Perfect on a sunny day and for just strolling around. Lots of eateries around if you plan on spending any length of time.

Wonderful atmosphere, makes for a great individual activity to walk the market, sit under a tree and read, or do yoga. Or, a great family activity, bring the kids and there is ample running and playing space in the Brewer Park.

If you yearn to support locally grown agriculture, this is the market for you. Buy plants and grow your own seasonal food. Make your statement about food security issues in Ottawa by growing your own food!

This market has wonderful veggies, fruit, plants, breads!!! baked goodies, jams, honey, artisan products, cheese, meats, all locally made, gluten-free baked goods, homemade candy treats and cookies, vendors selling hot meals, and so much more!

My all-time favourite vendor is EcosTerre an Ethiopian booth that sells the best banana loaf, date loaf, lemon loaf, cinnamon roll loaf that I have even eaten in my life!
Great value for your dollar.

With the selection of over 100 vendors you are sure to find food to take home from this organic market. If it makes it home with you as you might just be tempted to eat it en route to your home!

Enjoy!
And, good on you for supporting local farmers!
