“Love this historical district”
Review of Old Market Square

Old Market Square
Ranked #24 of 207 things to do in Winnipeg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 January 2012

There are some lovely old buildings in this area. With the presence of Red River College, the area has a lot of traffic (in a good way). Lots of good eateries and enough outdoor entertainment in the summer

When I go to malls I see the same clothes store after store. In the Old Market Square I find some very unique styles and much wider assortment.

This area has the largest remaining building of its period in the country and the local area owners work hard to keep it that way. But no one is lagging - there are internet cafés, designer boutiques and lots of ecletic restaurants. Wonderful place to spend a day just wondering around...and in the right season great concerts in the central square as well.

Love the atmosphere and old world charm. A huge variety of one of a kind shops and restaurant. The cobble stone roads take you back in time and you can't help but appreciate the historic arcitecture. World class restaurants and open air free concerts keep you coming back to visit time and time again.

Old Market Square is a great place to take in free, quality entertainment all summer long. The fringe theatre and jazz festivals in particular make great use of the site, filling it with music, laughter, street merchants and happy people. The City should organize more events there into the spring and fall, because if there is nothing going on it can get a little scary there with vagrants drinking hairspray and sniffing gas. They will usually leave you alone but the odd one will get aggressive with passers-by asking for spare change.
