Nice shops, but really need to see it on the weekend

I was expecting a bit more given the reviews. The shops along the alley and plaza were nice and had interesting items to look at and buy. But since we went on a Friday it was a... read more

Strange name in English for the area known as Sapo's. Several antique shops in this area along with a very active weekend flea market which has crafts, antiques and many different collectable items. Some of these antique shops can be spendy and others of great value. Picked up 5 beautiful chandeliers for my new condo being renovated for what just... More

If you're in Puebla during a weekend, Callejon de los Sapos is a must! I had been there before but always on weekdays, I was surprised to visit again but this time during the weekend. It was very alive with plenty to explore specially if you collect anything, for sure you'll find something unusual that interests you. There's also a... More

The best flea market I've seen in a very long time. What makes this one special? The location.The street-lined stores with multi-colored walls and balconies are the best. Bargaining is the order of day here so come for some fun.

Lots of cool things to browse and but in this nice setting. Remember to walk down the street at one end of the market (crossing a main road) and you will be in one of the emost beautiful streets in Puebla - Calle 6 Sur - Look it up

We went on a Sunday and while this might be a fascinating place for antique lovers, I found the section set up for the weekend crowded and uninteresting. The shops were a bit more interesting and we enjoyed talking with the shop owners.

I was expecting a bit more given the reviews. The shops along the alley and plaza were nice and had interesting items to look at and buy. But since we went on a Friday it was a bit dead and the plaza was empty of merchant tents. Apparently all the tents appear only on the weekends when the flea market... More

I visited Alley of Frogs on Sunday 9th October 2016. This market is vibrant on Saturdays and Sundays. Located in the historic portion of the city amidst magnificent and colossal colonial buildings, the market has antiques, souvenirs and furnitures reminiscent of rich and traditional Mexican cultures. The market has conventional shops as well as traditional street stalls. I would advise... More
