Wondering what you’ll have for dinner tonight? Try something that tastes fresh, is healthier for you and supports the region’s economy. The Historic Roanoke City Market brings an enticing array of fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, and plants during growing season. The market even boasts a variety of fresh meat, cheeses, and baked goods.
Our vendors are trusted food sources and are always on site to answer any questions you have about the market products, a definite perk you won’t find at your grocery store. If you purchase food from the market you are purchasing fresh, quality products that aren’t weighted down by chemicals and preservatives to make a long journey from an unnamed farm to your kitchen table. Each day, the products sold at our market are arriving fresh from a farm that’s been inspected and approved as meeting all health and sanitation codes as well as statewide agricultural requirements.
Fresh food isn’t the only thing waiting for you at the market. Looking for unique gifts and collectibles? The market has a number of artisans who have joined the farmers and planters offering handcrafted items, unique jewelry, and other art pieces.
The Historic Roanoke City Market is open year-round, seven days a week, and closes only on Christmas and New Year's Day. It has been recognized as a "Great American Public Place" by the Lyndhurst Foundation along with other winners like the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC and Central Park in New York City. Locally, the market receives many "Best of Roanoke" awards by readers of the Roanoker Magazine.
