Galiff Street Pet Market is a pet lover’s paradise. Located in North Kolkata at stone’s throw distance from the Shyambazar 5 point crossing off B T Road. Originally developed at Hatibagan in North Kolkata the market was shifted to Galiff Street due to space constraints. This is the oldest pet market of West Bengal and one of the oldest in India. The “Haat” (weekly Bazaar) takes place on Sundays.

Hobbyists can find various species including rare verities of dogs, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, pigeon, fish, aquatic mammals, plants and flowers. Under the Wildlife Protection Act of 1972, Indian birds like parrots are banned from sale. But here sellers regularly trade in illegal species. A few years back “People for Animals” activists demonstrated in this market. However, the market continues as is.

Galiff Streets sees a huge influx of hobbyists every week. Some of them traveling overnight from great distances. Additionally, general traders from across the city come to pick up stock from the wholesale market.

Apart from regular visitors, there are highly organized groups of Hobbyists who visit and document the market on a weekly basis. One such group is “Kolkata Aquarium Club” or KAC. Members meet up and discuss Aquatics and at times go ahead with a group buy. These helpful avid aquarists can be easily spotted from their exclusive golden Arowana fish inscribed T-Shirts. The current market prices and photographs of species are updated and discussed on their bulletin board.

The prices of livestock, food, and supply are amazing. There are a lot of pet shops all over Kolkata but nothing comes close to Galiff Street at least in terms of pricing. Pet business owners find it easier and cheaper to fill in their weekly supplies. The market is so popular that even popular Pet shop owners take part at the market every Sunday.source-int
