Montreal is a fashionable city and a popular shopping destination. Beyond upscale shops and chain stores, the city also offers a variety of options for the thrifty shopper. If you want to take a step beyond the numerous well-curated vintage boutiques and start rummaging around on your own, here are some of the best flea markets and thrift stores in and around Montreal.

Le Magasin du Chaînon

Le Magasin du Chaînon is an organization that provides shelter and support for women facing difficulty in Quebec. The Chaînon store in the Plateau neighborhood sells clothing, furniture, and home accessories—donated by the community—at an affordable price, and the income from the store is the main source of funding for the organization.

La Boutique Les Petits Frères

La Boutique, tucked away in the Plateau, offers a well-organized selection of secondhand items such as clothes, shoes, jewelry, accessories, household goods, and more. Volunteers run the store, and proceeds go toward providing elder care for seniors in Montreal.

Metropolitan Flea Market

The Metropolitan Flea Market (Marché aux puces métropolitain) is not only the largest indoor flea market in the city, but it’s also the biggest in Canada. Located in Saint-Leonard, the market has 700 kiosk spaces selling items that range from clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories to games, home décor items, beauty products, and more. The market also has a selection of food options for when you need an energy boost after hours of browsing curios and countless other objects.
