If shopping is your thing, the Ozark Folk Center State Park is your kind of place
The Ozark Folk Center State Park offers a variety of unique shopping experiences. The Craft Village is home to 21 craft shops where you can visit with the artisans, watch them tie brooms, spin pots, spin yarn, weave baskets, dip candles, carve wood, stir soap, print cards, forge iron, tool leather, cut glass and so much more. Then you can buy the piece you saw made, or one like it, directly from the person who made the item.
The Homespun Gift Shop at the entrance to the park carries handcrafted items consigned by crafts people from throughout Arkansas as well as Ozark Folk Center themed merchandise and books on crafts, music, cooking, gardening and homesteading skills. The General Store offers old-fashioned candies and locally grown preserves.
Shop the Herb Shoppe, where you’ll find Ozark native plants, pass-along plants, culinary and medicinal herbs from around the world. We save and sell seeds from our plants. We propagate our own unique varieties and offer them direct to you.
Look for shopping opportunities throughout the park, from music CD's by the performers you watched on the stage available at the auditorium; to homemade soap in the cabins check in lobby; to locally grown fruit spreads and art by area artists in the Skillet Restaurant.
