Ground Zero of the Springs wONEder Project

la MICHOACANA is where it all began. In 2011, Rico Martin updated the original brand and designed the ice cream store interior. The idea was to create an environment that made you feel happy the moment you walked in. After designing a second store in Novato, Rico began developing the exterior of the ‘Springs’ store when owner Teresita Fernandez learned of the Facade Improvement loans from the county and suggested that Rico offer a design solution for the entire building which included ‘Plain Jane’s’ next door.

Crafting the Original la Michoacana fruit
& Ice Cream Deserts for Generations 
This is the original la MICHOACANA Natural Ice Cream and Fruit Paletas shop. Started generations ago, they are a family-run business, bringing the brand to the US from Mexico with the original home-style recipes. They feature a number of wonderful deserts and natural fruit treats. If Paleta’s are new for you, Teresita says “Come in to visit our store in the Springs and discover our wonderfully exotic hand made ice cream. Create some sweet memories with your family today!”.
