We are now on Google Maps, so feel free to search “Roanoke Valley Farmers Market” to find us if you’re coming from far away! If you’re local or prefer to use landmarks, we are half a mile west of Bobby’s Supermarket on Highway 158. To reach us from Rightmyer Machine Rentals: go North on Highway 48 for half a mile, turn left on Highway 158, and go a half a mile.

The Roanoke Valley Farmers’ Market has had two successful weeks so far, thanks to the support of our community members, and the dedication of our farmers, craftspeople, and local producers. Special thanks also for the support of Cooperative Extension staff in Halifax and Northampton counties in getting our market ready to thrive this year, and especially to Mr. Michael Pittman and those affiliated with Operation Restart for their consistent hard work.

We hope to see you on Saturday for Week 3!

We will be featuring our beloved vendors from previous weeks, in addition to some farmers and artisans who have not yet been in attendance! Summer fruits and vegetables are coming in quickly! We are proud to announce that all goods for sale at Roanoke Valley Farmers’ Market have been grown or produced locally. Come help support your neighbors who produce many of the things we love, and explore a variety of healthy, cost-effective choices!

Some of the high-quality, affordable products available this season include but are not limited to:

  • Fruits & Vegetables

The Roanoke Valley Farmers Market is a space for all people to exchange goods, services, and ideas, and to come together in a positive and healthy environment.
