Wondering what you'll have for dinner tonight? Try something that tastes fresh, is healthier for you and supports the region's economy—try our locally grown produce and meats. 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 meats—all from local farms! Our vendors are trusted food sources and are always on site to answer any questions you have about their products, a definite perk you won't find at your grocery store. Everything sold in the market area has been certified as "locally grown," meaning 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 local 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 objects. 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 and locally, the market receives many "Best of Roanoke" awards by readers of the Roanoker Magazine.
