Seafood in Byward Market – Ottawa, Canada

I’m embarrassed to say that as a Canadian-born citizen and having lived in Canada 20+ years, I haven’t visited our capital city.  It was time to visit Ottawa…. O Canada!


My favourite neighbour in Ottawa is Byward Market…. apart from the market itself, there are cute boutiques and a lot of different restaurants…. It’s like Vancouver’s Gastown/Yaletown/Kitsilano rolled into one neighbourhood…

We went to the farmer’s market and got a lot of fresh fruits…

and they were such a good deal too! 5 CAD for 16 peaches…….

For lunch, we found a place for seafood.PEI oysters

moules frites… unfortunately, the sauce of the mussels were bland…

Cajun shrimp salad….

We also had another seafood meal at dinner.. this time at Lapointe. Its fish shop has been established since 1867!
