Why Shop Local at the Historic Roanoke City Market?
Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food
Connect with the people growing your food, it's the best way to learn where your food comes from and how it's grown. At our market, you won't find highly processed foods grown with pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, and genetic modification or foods processed by being irradiated, waxed, or gassed.
Support Family Farmers and Protect Our Natural Resources
Family farmers need your support to compete with large agribusiness food production. And, prices at our market are competitive (often lower) compared to the grocery store. Food at the grocery store often travels a great distance and transportation uses precious natural resources. The products on our market travel an average of 25 miles - no long-distance shipping or weeks in storage!
Find an amazing array of produce and products you won’t see in your average grocery store. Check our “Availability Calendar” to see what’s in season!
