For those that enjoy getting out of the house before sunrise and bargain hunting, the Marché aux puces de Sainte-Foy should not be overlooked. The largest outdoor flea market in Québec City offers plenty of bargains ranging from vintage memorabilia to used items and knick-knacks.
Once a week, from mid-May to early September, the Marché aux puces de Sainte-Foy takes over the car park located a few feet away from the Sainte-Foy Bus Terminal. Vendors selling at the flea market usually begin arriving from 05:00, and latecomers have their stalls ready by 08:00. The Marché aux puces de Sainte-Foy is known for being a place where the early bird catches the worm, though those that do not fancy beating the sun on a summer Sunday need not worry.
Though the area is large and spacious, vendors fit their stands in snugly next to each other and fill the space with thousands of unique items. The Marché aux puces de Sainte-Foy overflows with vintage and second-hand clothing, toys that will have you reminiscing about the old days, kitchen utensils, decorative items, ornaments, furniture, pictures, jewelry, LPs, pictures and much more!
