The Market on Oak ~A Way of Life

The Market on Oak~A Way of Life is a non-profit lifestyle destination celebrating the NC Mountain Way of Life where artisan crafts people, farmers, musicians and authors from Western North Carolina sell and share their work. The shop speaks to the unique cultural values and way of life in the western North Carolina mountains.  Our mission is to share our way of life and to provide the gifted, vibrant people of our region—many of whom have lost their jobs in the furniture and manufacturing industries to overseas factory relocations—a way to make a living doing what they love and what they know best. We want to be a place where you can come in the store, shop, smile and laugh and learn about our culture. Then we want you to take a piece of “our way of life” home with you.The Market on Oak offers:• artisan crafts, pottery, quilts, furniture, glass, home décor, children’s items and more
• books from local authors (as well as signings and lecture opportunities)
• recordings and CDs including live music from local artists
• specialty food products from local farmers and food artisans
• a farmers market on special days throughout the growing seasonThe Market on Oak is a non-profit project began in 2003 as the Home of the Perfect Christmas. Expanded in 2011 to the Market on Oak, the project now assists even more artisans, farmers, musicians and authors.  The Market on Oak continues to offer annual scholarships to local high school students to assist them in furthering their education.Hours: Monday-Saturday 10-4(Don’t you love our great looking model below from the Mitchell County Animal Shelter modeling our special dog collars?)
