Heading back to Ohio from Florida we wanted to take a break and saw the signs for this center and decided to stop. Boy were we surprised!

This place is lovely!! It is a large facility that has a huge assortment of artwork and crafts from local artisans. There is a place to grab a bite to eat, in good weather you could sit outside, the restrooms are the cleanest I've EVER seen and they even had flowers on the counters.

What a breath of fresh air on a roadtrip that is full of friendly kind people. Great job Kentucky. We'll be back!!!

Iike being in a museum.
Mostly art as opposed to arts and crafts.
Local artists display their work for sale and there are some beautiful, fanciful, even whimsical pieces available. Prices are relatively ambitious.
It is a fun experience.
There is a snack bar too.

We stopped for lunch and the art on our way south. The center has a large space featuring the gorgeous arts and crafts of Kentucky, and it is awesome, with prices comparable to other stores featuring these items. The cafe is at the far end of the center. We recommend ordering your food first, and then viewing the art, because it took almost a half hour to get one chicken salad sandwich and one catfish sandwich. We are Kentuckians and have visited three times before, and every time, the cafe is too slow! Also, we have never visited and found all the food stations open. What gives?

When traveling down I75 this place is a great stop to use the restroom, stretch your legs and do some browsing. It is by no means a replacement for the wonderful shops Berea has to offer, but a great place to start.

Realizing we'd not visited here in several years, we dropped by on our way from Lexington. It's a very, very nice venue. It truly showcases Kentucky made items and crafts. All are for sale of course. It has an "artsy" atmosphere as it should. Items are a little pricey, but considering local made if you visit places such as this you'll understand. No flea market stuff here. Also some good books by Kentucky authors, and Kentucky history as well for those who live in the state.
They have a nice snack bar as well.
We'll go back this summer and try to make it a quarterly trip to see how they rotate items in and out.
Well worth a stop when traveling.
