The ByWard Market was established by Lt-Col. John By in 1826. It is one of Canada’s oldest and largest public markets. It has both a local farmers’ market as well as artisans selling their crafts. This market averages 50,000 visitors per weekend in the summer months. http://www.byward-market.com
The ByWard Market is a great place to work on my street photography skills. Many stalls were full of flowers and herbs for the garden. There were street performers and many food vendors feeding the crowds. I was not the only one caught by the unusual sight of two very small ponies pulling this not so very small carriage. Everyone loves to see the horses downtown but they are usually larger working horses.
