Farmers Market – City Market, Roanoke, Virginia

In Roanoke, Virginia the street Market Square SE terminates at the City Market. The City Market itself was renovated in 2011 and serves as a food court with indoor dining area and stage for community gatherings and performances. Outside the full extent of Market Square SE and the two corners opposite the City Market are lined by sheds with permanent metal tables for vendors. This evokes the feeling of a sort of outdoor market. This relatively close proximity of the farmers and market vendors to storefronts creates a nice synergy between the two.
