Farmers Markets & COVID-19

Year-round, rain or shine

1210 Patterson Avenue SW | Roanoke, VA

Located in the covered pavilion behind the Freedom First Credit Union branch

 

The West End Farmers Market is open! In order to ensure the safety of our customers, vendors, and staff, LEAP has developed an online pre-order and curbside pick-up model. Additionally, the LEAP Mobile Market will be on-site and will offer limited walk-up shopping.

How it works:
1. Familiarize yourself with the LEAP Online Marketplace and don’t forget to use the promo code LEAP4Local when signing up for 3 months of membership for FREE! After that, membership is just $5 per 3 months.

2. After you’ve set up your online profile, choose your preferred pick-up time/location (Grandin or West End), and then it’s time to start shopping! Orders for West End pick-up must be placed between Thursday morning and Saturday night. Simply choose the items you’d like and check out via a secure Stripe portal. You can filter by category and producer to help find the items you want.

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).

3. *Please double check to make sure your pick-up location is correct!* After you have completed your order and paid online, LEAP staff gathers your orders from the online marketplace’s producers and prepares them for easy curbside pick up or delivery within Roanoke City for an additional $5.

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 this link to add the West End 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!

The West End Farmers Market supports local, sustainable agriculture by connecting the public with local farmers and food producers. The West End Market accepts and doubles SNAP-EBT benefits up to $30 and doubles purchases made by Medicaid & WIC members up to $30.

All of our markets feature 100% locally produced products with an emphasis on organic, sustainable, and humane producers, products, and practices.   All products sold at our markets are produced within 100 miles of our market locations.  We make two exceptions to this rule:  we allow regional seafood from Virginia and North Carolina waters (only if the vendor is local) and coffee (only if the roaster is local).
