We find clear numerical evidence for a bilinear condensate in three-dimensional QCD in the 't Hooft limit. We use a non-chiral random matrix model to extract the value of the condensate Σ from the low-lying eigenvalues of the massless anti-Hermitian overlap Dirac operator. We estimate Σ/λ^2 = 0.0042 ± 0.0004 in units of the physical 't Hooft coupling.
