EVEN in Winter

Increasingly, area farmers are growing in greenhouses and tunnels in order to feed their community year round. Grandin Village Farmers Market sets up on the first and third Saturdays of January, February, and March. Find the market under the collection of tents in the parking lot behind the Roanoke Co+op, offering crisp greens, root veggies, local meats, cheese, eggs, and so much more. Sometimes ice or snow will cancel a market. Head to our Facebook or Instagram pages to find news of weather-related changes.

What will you find
at market?

Grandin Village Farmers Market vendors sell certified and noncertified organic veggies, fruits, and herbs; pasture raised/grass-fed chicken, eggs, and hand-crafted cheeses; locally raised beef and pork; artisan homemade breads, baked goods, hot-prepared foods, locally roasted coffee, fermented foods, and more.

This market was the spark that created LEAP and it remains a welcoming place, where community, sustainability, and deliciousness intersect week after week, year after year.

LOCAL food for all

Grandin Village Farmers Market doubles the value of purchases made by recipients of SNAP, Medicaid, and WIC. Shoppers let the market manager know they’d like to participate in LEAP's match programs. For every dollar spent (EBT, cash, or credit), customers receive a dollar in free fruits and vegetables. If shoppers spend $10, they receive $10 in black tokens (good for any SNAP-eligible item), and $10 in red tokens (good for produce and plants only), for a total of $20.
