Traditionally the ByWard Market (map), Parliament Hill (map) and the Golden Triangle (map) have been the focal points of the cultural scenes in Ottawa.

ByWard Market (map) Among other things, this is a farmer’s market; in summer, stalls selling fresh produce and flowers line the streets, and maple syrup bought at the farmer’s market costs half the price of the same bottle sold at souvenir shops elsewhere in the Byward Market or anywhere else in the city. It is also a craft and tourist market with a range of shops and the city’s busiest entertainment district with restaurants, pubs, bars and many street performers.

The Byward Market area has a wide selection of different cuisines; the Chinatown are (map) a is along Somerset West (#2 bus from downtown) between Bronson Ave. and Preston St; Little Italy (map) runs along the length of Preston Street, from Carling Avenue to Albert Street (#2 to Somerset & Preston or #3 along Preston).
