Started in 2000, the Nanny Goat Hill Community Garden is an urban greenspace in Centretown, Ottawa. The gardens now have more than 100 plots for growing fruits and vegetables.
This is a great place to explore any time, but stop by on a market day for some shopping. Nanny Goat Hill hosts regular "Good Food Markets," where growers sell quality produce at great prices. In the summer, the markets are at the gardens themselves, but in the winter they move to an indoor location. Check the website for details.
