For those who like to get out of the house before sunrise and go bargain hunting, the Marché aux puces de Sainte-Foy is not to be missed. The largest open-air flea market in Québec City, it offers bargains on everything from vintage memorabilia to second-hand items and knick-knacks.

Once a week, from mid-May to early September, rain or shine, the Marché aux puces de Sainte-Foy occupies the P3 car park at the ExpoCité (corner of Soumande and Avenue du Colisée). The stallholders usually start arriving at 05:00 and the latecomers have their stalls ready by 08:00. The Marché aux puces de Sainte-Foy is known as a place where the early bird catches the worm, although those who do not feel like beating the sun on a summer Sunday need not worry.
