Easy to get to, just a few blocks from the Jardin. It's an uphill walk, sometimes steep, but worth every step. Lots of Mexican artesanias (art & craft). The prices are great. I didn't find better places elsewhere. Many items I found no where else....More

Glad I discovered this Artist Market, that is open daily, compared to others. Huge selection of folk crafts and much less expensive than stores around the Jardin.

All kinds of things to eat, buy for family, friends, and yourself (souvenirs, hats, shoes, trinkets, toys, and clothing). Nice variety. No pressure, friendly shopkeepers.

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.
