About Galiff Street Pet Market

Galiff Street is a thriving pet market that starts early in the morning every Sundays and continues up till late afternoon. Located at a stone-throw distance from Shyambazar 5-point crossing, it is considered as a paradise for the pet lovers. This street offers a different variety of rabbits, albino rats, guinea pigs, dogs, fishes, and birds. Even the flowers and plants of rare and exotic varieties are sold here in this market. This market was initially situated in Hatibagan during the British era, however, later it shifted to this place due to the space constraint there. Galiff Street is not only the oldest pet market in Kolkata but also in India. This weekly market has an innate fame and is an interesting place to visit. Despite a lot of limitations, Galiff Street pet market is continuing a traditional history as the yesteryears.

Pro Tip: Visit this market early in the morning. As by late afternoon the market shuts down.
