Wow, this cute little artisan area has everything. Clothing, jewelry, pewter and shoes and much more. There are all sorts of beautiful shops with colorful paintings and they are all very nice. You will also find some very clean bathrooms in this area.

I love artesanías and although on the small side compared to other artesanía markets, it’s on the small side. I loved that it’s partially in like an alleyway. There are many different shops with different types of artwork. Very colorful.

I had wanted to go to this market forever. This last trip (August) I went to it. Honestly, I was disappointed. I figured I'd see many artisans and some different things that wouldn't be found in the regular tourist shops around the main square... not...More

There is an autopista that runs from Moroleon to Celaya, once in Celaya it is about one hour to San Miguel -- buses run regularly along both routes. Check the map and ask if you need specific details.
