Roanoke Farmers’ Market

Sat, July 11 - Sat, September 12, 2020

The Roanoke Farmers' Market is held each Saturday morning from July 11th through September 12th, except for July 25th. 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.

Renaissance in Roanoke

Sat, October 10 - Sat, October 10, 2020

Roanoke’s charming Main Street creates the perfect frame for the town’s annual outdoor art show called Renaissance in Roanoke. Started by local artists and business owners to highlight the renovated beauty of Roanoke's downtown, it offers a picturesque family setting with activities for all to enjoy.

Renaissance in Roanoke features local and regional artists who are on-hand to display and sell their original art with live demonstrations by some of the artists.

A favorite part of the day is the plein air competition. These artists arrive as early as 8 a.m. and set up their easels around town to begin painting or drawing. They capture a scene in Roanoke and as the day passes visitors to the event can watch the images emerge on canvas.

This is an invitational and juried show which offers the unique opportunity for the public to support the arts and to interact and purchase directly from the artist.
