Visiting the Roanoke Farmers Market
Do you enjoy shopping at your local farmers market? In my town we have an excellent market and I need to make an effort to support it more than I do. It’s quite popular and crowded every Saturday.
On a recent beautiful Saturday Suzanne and I got up early to head to the Roanoke farmers market which is an hour away. We had such a good time browsing through the market and purchasing locally made and grown products.
Anne Vaughan Designs had her gorgeous jewelry set up under a tent. I liked her jewelry so much that I admired it four different times. I was seriously tempted to buy a necklace.
We enjoyed trying Spring Mill Farm’s delicious goat cheeses.
I bought some Peppermint and Tea Tree Soap from Belle’s Place Soap Co. They don’t have a website but if you are interested in ordering you can email Richard at [email protected].
I’m constantly using bug spray for yard work or for a walk with Sherman and am eager to try Belle’s Place Bugs Away.
They even have shampoo and soap for your pet.
Paw Paw’s Treats set up an adorable booth.
These peanut butter treats looked and smelled good enough for me to eat. I was seriously tempted.
Paw Paw’s offers peanut butter, sweet potato and rice, and chicken and bacon flavors for your special dog.
Sherman got a bag of peanut butter treats and he loves them.
After shopping the market, we walked down Church Street to Little Green Hive to look for some Red Rooster Coffee.
When you buy a pound of coffee at Little Green Hive you get a free pour of coffee. Suzanne and I enjoyed our coffee while walking back to our car.
It’s always fun to take a short trip out of town. Have you taken any road trips lately?
I love a farmers market. When I lived in St. Paul, I lived right across the street from one. Fresh veggies and flowers every week!
Brook – I’ll bet you miss living across the street from the market. Ours is downtown and I need to make more of an effort to support it.
I have not taken any road trips lately, but I did visit the Farmer’s Market in our neighborhood on Saturday. I love them! I’ll post about it tomorrow. The Roanoke market had some great variety. I love that! Your coffee looks delish….I have a serious coffee addiction!
I love going to farmer’s markets to support local businesses, buy fresh, delicious food and find something unique, like those adorable doggy biscuits!
Great post… I love that you gave a shout out to your local food and craft vendors! We always try to support local artisans and farmers here too… it makes a huge difference to the community!
You should let me know the next time you visit our farmer’s market! I will take you out for coffee.
Let me know the next time you come to our market and I will take you out for coffee!

Thanks for trying out Little Green Hive, glad you enjoyed your coffee! Sure hope you’ll join us again 🙂
