Drawing top notch producers from the National Capital region, the market connects you with the people who grow your food.
Starting in our own backyard, we are working to expand the market-share of sustainably-produced food and products. This includes local, organic and fairly traded food, plants and artisanal goods. We believe there are environmental, social and economic benefits to purchasing local food.
Initiated as a Sustainable Living Ottawa East pilot project in 2007 the market is entering its 10th full season and has become a pillar in the Old Ottawa East Community. With the initial support of St. Paul’s University and then the Canadian Museum of Nature during Main St. Renewal construction, our new home is back on Main St. for 2017.
