During this time of year, when the winter cold comes and adorns the season with its white and gray colors, the colors of Christmas also arrive at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market, where local products are available every weekend. Near the entrance is a large Christmas tree that is ideal for a family photo. At the Aberdeen Pavilion, you can browse crafts, food, seasonal products, and even find the perfect gift for the holiday season. You will enjoy live music, try international cuisine, and you can take off your jacket, hat, and gloves because it is not cold.

Walking through the Aberdeen Pavilion, a building built in 1898, surrounded by a great variety of flavors, colors, and sounds, is a beautiful experience. Our vendors share their experiences and their love for what they do – you will learn about their products and the stories of each local producer that is part of the Ottawa Farmers Market. Discover more about each vendor by visiting Vendor Profiles.

Come live this experience and give yourself the opportunity to learn about new products and support the local economy of Ottawa. The Aberdeen Pavilion is located in Lansdowne Park adjacent to the Rideau Canal.
