The Historic Roanoke City Market is the oldest such market in continuous use in Virginia.

In 1882 licenses were issued to 25 hucksters. The city of Roanoke's first charter formally authorized a municipally owned market in 1884, and the first permanent Market Building was completed in 1886. This formed the core of a vibrant open-air market in and around the Market Square which continues to operate today as a vital center for Downtown Roanoke.

Visit the Market year-round, Monday through Saturday, 8AM to 5PM for produce of every sort and the finest regional crafts. The Historic Market building offers a food court and fantastic shopping opportunities. The entire Market District includes unique shopping, galleries, boutiques, restaurants, antique shops, museum shops, and much more!
