The site of a former factory, the Fabrica has numerous high quality art galleries, artist studios, shops selling antiques, art objects, and Mexican home decor, as well as three different cafe/restaurants to eat at. Some of the art studios also offer art classes in weaving, drawing, and painting.

I celebrated the creative life at Fabrica La Aurora's January Anniversary Fiesta. The art of life, creativity and dancing was once again one of the reasons I make San Miguel my home.

Went to the annual anniversary party at the Fabrica. It exceed my expectations over and over. The art was amazing and diverse. The people watching was fun and the libations were more than adequate. If you are in SMA in late January don't miss it.

Set in an old industrial building and filled with interesting art and antiques. Well worth spending a morning or afternoon bro using the various shops. Features a cafe and restraunt as well. Located a short walk from the center of town.

After becoming tired of mass produced folk art in the market, we loved the original art. Unfortunately could not afford anything.

Linens, scupture, crafts, decor, fabrics, jewelry,and both famous art and new art are all displayed beautifully in individual stores. You also get to see how the machines worked to make spools of...
