Summer-long night market kicks off Friday

By CBC News Ottawa, June 7, 2018

Ottawa loves its farmers markets, especially under a sunny sky.

What the city has lacked is a similar meeting place for night owls. Until now.

"We wanted to create a space that didn't already exist," said Naomi Praamsma, executive director of Bethany Hope Centre on Fox Crescent. "An opportunity to create an evening community, a place to come in and meet with your neighbours, your friends."

The market starts Friday and will feature farmers, food vendors, gardeners, artisans and more.
