Montreal/Quebec Flea Markets

My mom and I are going to Montreal for the first week of June 06. Are there any good flea markets within driving distance. We will have a car.We don't mind going a distance. We can check out the scenery too. What are some good day trips also? Thanks

You shouldn't miss Finnegan's market in Hudson. It's open every Saturday during the summer.

Finnegan's is a lovely flea market and a nice road trip; on your way back, you could stop in the Village of Pointe Claire, Cartier exit south on the 20.

don't let anyone send you to the North Shore flea markets though, such as Laval, St. Eustache. Nothing quaint about those.

You can also take the 125 North and visit the Lanaudière area.

There is a nice "marché aux puces" at St-Esprit or Ste-Julienne (can never remember which village, but it's on the right side of the road). There are lots of sideroad stands where you can buy fresh produce also.

You can drive to Rawdon and, if the weather is nice, visit the Dorwin Falls. Really a nice day trip.

What is wrong with St Eustache? Is Lachute o.k.? What about Bromont?

I am definately doing Finnigan's.

Should i try the others. I am looking for old junk. ; 0 )

St-Eustache has mayby 10 worthy tables. The rest is socks, sunglasses, country bootleg CDs, ugly new clothes, etc. Really, not the best. (Although I did find some amazing newspapers from 1920's there, mint condition!)

I didn't even know there was one in Bromont!

There is also one in Carignan (30 minutes from Montreal). It seems a bit trashy, but I have made some of my best finds there! http://www.puces.com/puces.html

Hi! Yes I imagine Carignan was awful! The best tables are always outside and when it's an awful day like last Saturday, the good dealers don't show up! Anyway, glad you found something at St-Eustache!
