On May 19th we are celebrating 8 years of Pulga! We want to thank all of the community of San Miguel, locals and expats, for supporting and being part of this project. Thanks to our team, the participants that sell and everyone that comes to shop, you all make La Pulga possible every month.

The flea market La Pulga was created in May 2011 with only 60 vendors and nowadays we have more than 150 participants. La Pulga is an event “from the community, for the community” of San Miguel which goal is to offer an inclusive space for everyone.

Why did we start La Pulga? Because of our passion for second hand shopping and the beauty of searching and finding treasures at affordable prices. There is something special about discovering a great item, maybe something you weren’t looking for or didn’t know you needed until the moment you find it… and then you know, you know you need to have it! There is beauty on giving an object a second life and embracing something that already has it’s own stories. We love seeing the smiles in our shoppers that leave La Pulga with pure joy after scoring a great item. There is always something for everyone, it might be a beautiful carved wooden bench, or an antique mask, or maybe it’s a colorful scarf and a great coat from the south. You will always find something. It’s also a great place to shop for unique gifts for dear friends. Before you leave don’t forget to grab a jar of local organic honey and some incense.

“Flea market” comes from the French “marché aux puces”, a name that was given originally to a market in Paris. The market specialized in shabby second-hand items that might contain fleas, or at least that’s what history says.

La Pulga is a monthly flea market, swap meet, bazaar, where you will find all kind of things at accessible prices. From antiques and hard to find objects, to new items, crafts and art, clothes, shoes, furniture, jewelry, toys, food, music and treasures. Come sell, buy, trade, eat, dance… and enjoy with friends and family.

Join us Sunday May 19th at Salón Los Pinos, Salida a Querétaro 145 from 11 to 3pm. If you are interested in participating or you want more info about La Pulga write us to lapulgasanmiguel@gmail.com or find us on Facebook “La Pulga San Miguel”.
