The Ottawan


HELLO OTTAWA 

The good news is that you received today's ottawan extra early. The bad news is that it's an awfully short edition. Friday might be abridged as well, sorry. But please hang on, Ottawa, we'll get back into the groove by Monday.

In the meantime, we have a new map for you: Ottawa-Gatineau Farmer’s Markets. And this is really the time to be visiting them because the local veg is practically hurling itself out of the ground.

We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
