Roanoke Farmers Market

Saturday, August 20, 2011

July 9 marks the kickoff of the eleventh year of Roanoke’s farmers markets. Held every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to noon, through September 10, the market is a community event that brings neighbors and friends together. It also provides an opportunity to visit the shops.

Main Street is blocked off for the event and the street is lined with market carts, which are filled with fresh produce and unique goods.

The farm vendors will change throughout the summer as different vegetables and fruits become available. The fresh taste of homegrown produce, such as corn, tomatoes, berries, peaches and apples seem to bring visitors back, year after year.

Each week, there is also a bake sale fundraiser and some vendors sell locally-made crafts. The market features local entertainment and local pottery, painting and wood carvings.
