A great mix of the local trinkets and folk art. Plan your day and give yourself time, there is a lot to see. You need to really look and take the time if you want to find the unusual.

If you're going to buy any silver or gifts, this is the place to get the best deals than other stores around the center of town. So, it's worth visiting. :)

It's a picturesque few blocks of stalls, but you won't find much more treasure than you can in Laredo or Tijuana.

A mixture of cheap and nasty souvenirs and really nice hand crafts. The longer halls which run between Calles Loretto and Colegio are where you will find all the nick-nacks and hand-crafts. At the eastern end you can find the clothes, food and produce sections....More

This mercado has artisans from around the area and country. It is clean and well organized. The selection is amazing and the quality of wares above average. It is just a few blocks from the center of town.

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.
