Montreal loves vintage: there are an abundance of vintage stores in the city, and quite a few flea markets, bazaars and other vintage events.
One such occasion is the Bazaar Les Intemporelles, a special event that only takes place a few times a year. This huge flea market takes place outdoors, and it brings together a host of local artisans.
If you're interested in buying some locally-produced clothes, perusing through art or trying on some jewellery, check out Bazaar Les Intemporelles next weekend.
Buying vintage is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint: instead of buying mass-produced goods that often use water-intensive fabrics, you can give local products a second life.
At the same time, you're supporting a host of local artists like Les gentils bandits, who have a great selection of vintage pieces.
All in all, almost 30 independent boutiques and artists will be showing off their goods at this open-air bazaar.
Other creators with stands at the bazaar include jewellers, ceramic artists, eco-friendly product makers and many, many more.
The huge bazaar only happens a few times a year, so you have to make the most of the weekends when it takes place.
The event will pop up outside of the Centre de Loisirs communautaires Lajeunesse. In case of rain, the event will be moved indoors.
The bazaar is just steps from the Jean-Talon metro station. There will also be free parking on the premises.
Make sure to head there next weekend and stock up on a variety of locally-sourced goods. Personally, I'll be looking for some cute antique decorations for my apartment.
