The Salem Farmers Market is located in the heart of Salem’s downtown district on the corner of Main and Broad Streets. Thanks to the rich bottomland soils of the Roanoke River and the fertile surrounding areas, local farmers have always been able to provide some of the area’s finest produce for their customers.
In an effort to provide a more convenient location for local farmers to sell their products, the City of Salem constructed the Salem market structure in 1992. Since then the facility and its vendors have proven to be a valuable asset to the downtown economy. Special events are held throughout the season, promoting the market, its vendors, and the downtown in general. Fresh produce, home-baked goodies, fresh cut flowers, honey, eggs, beef, and cheese are just a few of the things that we offer shoppers on a regular basis.
To provide a venue for farmers and consumers to connect. By doing this, the market increases the local food supply and production, and hopes to create, expand, and enhance the economic strength and viability of farmers in Salem and the Roanoke region while also contributing to the health of local residents.
