CFB Petawawa Full Circles
Popln: 14,358
CFB Petawawa is a major Canadian military base which is used for training / staging deployments of Cdn troops. It is probably a GREAT freecycle location because of the transitory nature of many residents. And, it could save Cdn taxpayers a LOT of money if unwanted stuff was freecycled rather than moved to new locations.

Valley Siding & Windows
Ottawa, ON, Canada
...From OttawaFreecycleBB - 2006-06-7

Valley Siding & Windows Ltd.
1360 Labrie
Ottawa, Ontario K1B 3M1

Valley's fancy show-case office is at 1348 Labrie (off Cyrville Rd), but a couple houses down, (same side of street) is where both the dumpster (for tossing) and the area for storing second hand windows (to sell) are kept. They bring in, sell and toss second hand windows regularly there so you'll never know from one day to the next just what you'll find. The area is closed off and locked after regular business hours Mon - Fri (6:00?)
but not operational during weekends.

ESTABLISHED by Lt-Col. John By in 1826, the ByWard Market is one of Canada's oldest and largest public markets.

WITHIN an area roughly four blocks square, you'll find museums, cafés, specialty food shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants, pubs, hair & aesthetics salons and more! Easily accessible on foot, by transit or by car, the ByWard Market offers a unique experience for all.

Kanata Farmers Market
420 Hazeldean Rd
Ottawa, ON K2L, CA
There are currently 10 vendors partaking in the Kanata Farmers’ Market, selling all types of vegetables, breads, cakes, honey and meats.

“People get fresher produce,” said Rochon about the benefits of shopping at a farmers’ market. “They get produce that has actual flavour – it exceeds the flavour of any product that you can get in a grocery store.”

By shopping at a local market, consumers are also helping build a stronger economy.
