We always have to stop and feed the fish when we’re in the area. If you are into pottery this is the place to stop at. We’ve bought a piece or two over they years but the old grist mill and trout are our draw.

We have been going to Mark of the Potter since we were young. the have been in business almost 50 years. Very cool pottery shop with a good variety. Fun to feed the trout or sit on the porch swing and gaze at the waterfall.

Great place with a large selection of pottery along with jewelry and crafts. The location is right alongside the water and there are some huge trout you can feed from the porch. The local artists are identified by a specific ‘mark’ they embed into each...More

It was a bit of a drive, but oh so worth it. And we weren’t the first to discover this. Lots of people stopped while we were there. Hugging the Soque River, the building used to be a grinding mill 80 years ago. So the...More

We enjoyed our visit to MOP with a group of people. I love the building, the porch where we fed the trout, a potter gave us a demonstration and we all shopped thru the store. A neat place and helpful employees!

I have been going to Mark of the Potter for 40 years. I even order online from Florida. The pieces I got back then are just as nice today. My husband takes pictures while I shop.

It was a last minute decision, and it was a good one. Falls to admire without walking, and a wonderful shop to explore. The building itself has so much history. Don't miss going down to the basement. Wonderful staff and a selection of pottery that...More

From the outside it does not look like it has much to offer. However, once you are in what a delightful surprise of beautiful and quality made pottery items. So glad we stopped!
