Bargain Hunters at La Pulga
By Jade Arroyo
The quintessential spot for a Sunday mood, La Pulga is a relaxed, quirky place for great shopping. Nobody can tell what you will find in its piles of clothes and accessories, junk from other eras, furniture, décor, or actual fancy antiques. Also, you can meet new artists selling their work, like illustrations or jewelry.
Besides stuff, you can also get massages, tarot readings, and great food or take out dessert.
Even though the offerings are mostly second hand and vintage, the price range here is vast. You might find a nice dress for 50 pesos or one for a few thousand.
La Pulga means The Flea, as in flea market. Another way to experience it is to get a table yourself, clean out your wardrobe, and bring in things you don’t use anymore. It’s a great idea to start the New Year fresh. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
This is a great place to go with the family, have a Sunday lunch, and listen to local DJs.
This market is held monthly at the event room Salón Los Pinos on Salida a Querétaro. It takes place from 11am to 4pm. We recommend arriving early to get the best deals.
