earlybird pre shop

Our Earlybird Preshop has been wildly popular & our shoppers have shown us their love & enjoyment of the event, as it sells out in record time every year (9 minutes to be exact!) . We have listened to your feedback and are adding a SECOND Earlybird Preshop with new daytime hours!!

Our Earlybird Preshop is a limited ticketed event. You will have the whole 3.5 hours to shop with NO General Admission. While the event is attended by a healthy crowd of excited shoppers, it saves you battling the longer line ups + bigger crowds that are seen during our regular shopping times. It allows you to get your hands on product before General Admission + gives you UNLIMITED entry during all General Admission hours.

Our TWO EarlyBird Pre-Shop days are:

Thursday May 3 //  5 – 8:30pm


Friday May 4 //  12noon – 3:30pm

***Your Early Bird ticket is only good for the date you purchase.Your ticket does NOT allow you to get into both Early Bird Pre Shops, unless you purchase tickets for each day.

Your tickets DO allow you unlimited entry into our General Admission times (see Spring Market post)

Plan ahead for your girls/guys night out (or afternoon out!) EarlyBird is NOT to be missed. Limited quantities of tickets sold, this event sells out every year!

Earlybird tickets sales open on Sunday March 18th @ 10am

our location

From historic downtown shopping to Winnipeg market hotspot!

We truly feel this is our new “home” and will give us the capacity to dream BIG and grow our VISIONS for Third + Bird Markets for MANY years to come!!! Bringing our local Market, back to downtown (where it all started) feels so good. With our new location, we can continue to minimize our carbon footprint, with the option of many popular bus routes leading right to the front doors of Hudson’s Bay. Their attached parkade has over 300 stalls, the Portage Place heated parkade is across the skywalk and there is ample street parking, which is FREE evenings and weekends.

Most of all we are excited to be connecting all corners of the city to our Market.

parking info

  • Street parking is FREE weekdays after 5:30pm, for the first 2 hours on Sat and FREE all day Sunday
  • The Portage Place parkade is heated + you can access the Bay via Skywalk.
  • The Impark Parkade attached to the Bay does not offer any discounts. You will pay full price.
  • Bus routes are plentiful leading to front doors of Hudson’s Bay.
  • Biking and wwalking are always a great choice to reduce your carbon footprint.
