Long Description:
"York Street was the farmers' street. At the end of the 19th century and well into the 20th, this was an extension of the Market itself and was lined with all sorts of shops, sidewalk sellers, feed and seed stores. This area had a permanent carnival atmosphere - the noise, the sights and the smells were ongoing. Also part of the street were hotels and taverns, for farmers who came to Ottawa for the week to sell their produce. The only one of these that remains is the Chateau Lafayette, built in 1849, which now operates as a pub. York Street was also a focus point for French-Canadians as the Institut Canadien-Français was located in the stone building at 18 York."
