BYWARD MARKET • MADE IN CANADA FOOD TOUR™
A Celebration of Canada's Local Food + Drink
As Canada’s capital, what better city to offer our signature Made In Canada Food Tour? It’s jam-packed with all the country’s most iconic and beloved culinary treats.
Whether you’re visiting Canada for the first time or have been ordering ‘double doubles’ all your life, this food tour is for everyone who is hungry to taste Canada’s local food and drink.
On this delicious Food Tour, you’ll discover Ottawa’s historic ByWard Market. Since 1826, the ByWard Market has been the centre of dynamic local food, artisan producers and Ottawa’s hip nightspots.
Filled with the country’s favourite flavours of maple, blueberries, Canadian seafood, artisan cheeses and the beloved Beavertail (as you've never tasted) – our ByWard Market • Made In Canada Food Tour serves up the Canadian classics in a contemporary way.
So, put your plaid on, practice saying “Sorry” and join us, eh?

Bring your appetite, our Food Tours + Adventures have you more than covered for Food + Drink. Bring a camera (or charged phone) for pics + memories. Bring your questions, we love sharing stories and recommendations for great places to eat + drink.
As for pace, while we set-up our Food Tours + Adventures with all our partners in advance, as small independent businesses, our partners will be busy juggling their regular customers and our tours, so we may face a tiny wait or eat standing at certain (small) stops. It’s part of our commitment to supporting local food, and showcasing the best eats, sips and bites of the city.
All our Food Tours run Rain, Snow or Shine, so please dress for the weather. We recommend purchasing PEACE OF MIND™ Tour Protection if you think you might be affected by weather or travel changes.
Culinary Adventure Co. experiences have been designed to highlight the best and most signature items from each of our vendors, shops and restaurants. Our partners showcase what they LOVE and their STORY – so ultimately their most delicious food + drink.
