Very informative place with items for sale. The items are a little pricey but the quality seem to support the prices.

“Great walk through”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

This is a wonderful place to spend an hour or more. Plenty of local crafts and art. There is no entry fee. Occasionally they have shows so check their calendar. This is an adult friendly afternoon adventure and kids probably will be bored.

“Much more than "Folk Art"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The center displays the work of talented artists who work in glass, fabric, pottery, jewelry, hand-made toys, and the like. This is a wonderful venue. We visit every time we are in Asheville.

“The best of local crafts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

The Folk Art Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway offers the most choice items from local WNC artists. Everything in the shop is "judged" and there is a nice, small museum on the 2nd floor.
