Hamilton food lovers who live in and around the Crown Point neighbourhood will have plenty to get excited about as a new boutique grocer, food shop, and cafe is preparing to open its doors.
Ottawa Market will soon become a fixture of Ottawa Street, taking up residence inside a former bank and bringing the best of local food to the neighbourhood.
Locals should immediately recognizes the forces behind Ottawa Market as the same ones behind the well-loved Dundurn Market, which is known for its quality grocery items, small-batch food products, café bites, and takeaway dishes.
Ottawa Market will be a larger space than Dundurn Market, featuring a café with seating and coffee roasted sustainably in-house.
Ottawa Market’s focus on community is already abundantly clear, as well; they’ve commissioned local mural artist Kyle Joedicke to craft an eye-catching mural for the market’s front façade, and they’re event partnering with Community Fridges HamOnt to host yet another vital community fridge outside of their shop.
