Tamarack Marketplace reviews
The resident glass blower was helping a guest with a "make and take" project and they made it look so easy! Since I have taken glass blowing classes, I know it takes a lot of skill and practice to... more »
Visited here recently for the first time since the 1990's and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great place to see the work of local artists from southern West Virginia, and I highly recommend watching the glass blowers do their thing. It's really interesting to watch their process as they shape and paint the pieces that will go on display for sale. We didn't partake of the restaurant but the food looked and smelled amazing and next time we'll check that out as well.
Great place to stretch your legs and get some change for the upcoming tolls. Bring your wallet things are pricey. The items are quality original art pieces. Look for the 16,000 dollar wooden chainsaw. It is a masterpiece. There is something for everyone. If you are lucky you will find the glass blower in action. His pieces are one of a kind. Really nice people, they make you feel welcome. Wear your masks, they will stop you at the door . Thank you for keeping us safe ........... Top notch facilities and expansive good court.
