LEAP Online Marketplace

LEAP is committed to maintaining and creating connections between local food producers and eaters. To that end, and in response to disruptions in our food system, LEAP has developed an online marketplace for local farms and food businesses


How it works

Use the promo code LEAP4Local when signing up for 3 months of membership for FREE! After that, membership is just $5 per 3 months.

After you’ve set up your profile, choose your preferred pick-up time/location (West End or Grandin – see below). Then, it’s time to start shopping! Simply choose the items you’d like and check out via a secure Stripe portal. Items will feature clear descriptions, the producer’s growing practices, and helpful recipes. You can filter by category and producer to help find the items you want.

We offer two pick-up options each week. Make sure to select your chosen pickup location under My Membership (click the avatar button on the top right of the home page) – West End or Grandin Village! You can only shop from one pickup location at a time.

For Tuesday pick-up at the West End Farmers Market (3 – 6pm, 1210 Patterson Ave. SW, Roanoke), you must place your order between Thursday and Saturday.

For third Saturday pickup at the Grandin Village Farmers Market, you must place your order between the preceding Sunday and Wednesday. Saturday curbside pickup is only available every third Saturday of the month (11/21, 12/19, 1/16/2021, 2/20, 3/20) from 10 am until 1 pm, at 2080 Westover Ave SW, Roanoke; please enter from Grandin Rd., via the alley between the Roanoke Co+Op and Pinnacle bank. See the GVFM page for additional info regarding pickup.

We also offer Tuesday home delivery within Roanoke city limits for a $5 delivery fee. If this delivery fee is a barrier, we’re glad to work with you. Simply purchase the “Home Delivery” item sold by LEAP. For Tuesday pickup/delivery, you must choose West End as your pickup location and place your order Thursday through Saturday.

If you are enrolled in SNAP, WIC, or Medicaid, please reach out directly to us at LOM@leapforlocalfood.org to receive a 50% discount on your order (order must consist of at least one half (1/2) fresh fruits and vegetables by value).

Please remember to pick up your order during the designated pickup time! Any order that is not picked up is not eligible for refund or alternate pickup time. We will do our best to call you if you haven’t come by the market near closing time but this is not guaranteed. If you need a helpful reminder, use these links to add the West End Farmers Market or Grandin Village Farmers Market to your Google Calendar, and set an alert. If you have an emergency and can’t make it to market, please email markets@leapforlocalfood.org or call 540-492-5311 and we will do what we can to help you!

In case of inclement weather, check your pick-up location market’s Facebook page (Grandin Village or West End) for up-to-date closure information. If a farmer/vendor can’t fulfill your order due to unsafe conditions, we’ll contact you and refund your purchase(s).
