Beginning next week, Roanoke City Farmers Market shoppers will find their favorite vendors, along with food trucks and live music, at the Riverside Sports Complex every Thursday evening from 4 to 7 p.m. through Aug. 29.
City Market at the River is an event aimed at giving customers an additional opportunity to shop for local meat, produce and other goods during the work week. In addition to the Thursday night events, the market will still be open seven days per week in downtown Roanoke.
Like the daily market, the Thursday night market will accept SNAP benefits and will double dollars up to $10.
Some of Southwest Virginia’s growing group of food trucks will make appearances at the market throughout the coming weeks, including Bruno’s GastroTruck from Smith Mountain Lake, Toasted by Casey from Christiansburg, and Roanoke’s Noke Truck and Rock & Roll Diner.
Downtown Roanoke, Inc., which manages the market, will post information about which trucks will be available at each week’s market on its Facebook page and its website. Customers are encouraged to enjoy their meals at a picnic table at the sports complex.
Entertainment will be provided by local radio stations and DRI will give away prizes, including coupons, city market products and tickets to DRI-sponsored events. Free parking for the event will be available in the lot adjacent to the sports complex.
