The Roanoke Farmers' Market is held each Saturday morning from July 6th to September 7th. The Roanoke Downtown block of Main Street is closed off from 9 am to 1 pm as volunteers from the community help to line the streets with Amish made carts topped with gaily colored striped awnings. Local vendors arrive with farm fresh produce, plants, crafts and baked goods for sale. Visitors and residents stroll along the street filling their bags, chatting with friends and neighbors and enjoying the summer mornings. There are breakfast items to enjoy while shopping or lunch enjoyed early and plenty of farm fresh veggies to take home for later. The produce varies as the summer progresses with both heirloom and more familiar varieties. All are locally grown. By the end of July the carts and tables overflow with plump ripe tomatoes, squash, onions, potatoes, beans, and more – not forgetting the first of fresh Indiana corn on the cob. And don’t forget the fruit for a balanced diet! Fresh from the vine raspberries and blackberries and true blue blueberries grace the market.
