The Parkdale Market was the second market established in Ottawa and remains a public market to this day. Since it launched in 1924 the Parkdale Market has been located in the Hintonburg area. It is on Parkdale Avenue, between Wellington Street West and Armstrong Street.
From May to November, producers sell everything from hanging baskets and fresh herbs to delicious fruit, vegetables and gourds. Local producers are identified by green signs and the Savour Ottawa logo. During the holiday season, vegetables make way for beautiful wreaths and Christmas trees.
The Parkdale Market is open seven days a week from May to November. Open daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Individual businesses set their own hours. Hours depend on the weather and vary from stand to stand.
From November 24 to December 24, the Parkdale Market offers Christmas trees and decorations made of natural products.
