Twice a year, once in October and again in April, Montreal's Marché Bonsecours hosts the Braderie de Mode Québécoise, or as it's known in English, the Big Fashion Sale by Quebec Designers, a shopping tradition since 1994 that originally attracted only 50 people, a far cry from the 30,000 shoppers the sale now crams into its four-day biannual run starring over 140 unique designer labels.

The next Braderie de Mode is held from Thursday, April 6 to Sunday, April 9, 2018 and then again in October 2018 (FALL DATES TBA).

Featuring samples and inventory surplus 50% to 80% off retail price - womenswear, menswear, accessories, jewelry - the Braderie is a unique sale in Montreal for the simple reason that all featured brands are the brainchildren of local designers.

And a quick note on prices: don't expect a sea of dollar bins. But do anticipate scoring label finds at the some of the best prices on the market. Brands to look out for include:

The Braderie de Mode/Big Fashion Sale by Quebec Designers is held at Old Montreal's Marché Bonsecours. As with any other sale, admission is free.
