our location

From historic downtown shopping to Winnipeg market hotspot!

With joy + excitement we are thrilled to announce Third + Bird has found a new home…The Hudson’s Bay Downtown! The Bay is a rich, historic landmark for Winnipeg. In many ways, it is one of the first “local” shops started in 1926. Going even further back to the fur trade days, in 1670, they were one of the first retail trading goods establishments! We are thrilled to bring back some local goods & trades from all our talented artisans.

It all feels part of the full circle and a “fitting” location for Third + Bird Markets.

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 The Bay. The Bay’s 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
