Council OKs new management for ByWard, Parkdale markets
Ottawa Citizen

By Matthew Pearson, Ottawa Citizen, April 12, 2017

Council endorsed a new governance structure for the ByWard and Parkdale markets, with hopes that severing oversight from city hall will produce fresh ideas.

By pulling the bureaucracy out of the markets business, the city believes there will be a new perspective to running the operations. The city will create a not-for-profit municipal services corporation to run the markets starting in 2018.

(...)Meanwhile, council also approved farmers’ markets in three locations, two of which are new — Village Square Park in Stittsville, the Byron Linear Tramway Park in Westboro and the Riverview park-and-ride in south Ottawa.
