Roanoke City Market Going On the Road

Roanoke, VA - The Roanoke City Market is expanding out of central downtown again this summer with a new night open at Riverside Park.

The City Market at the River will be open from 4:00 to 7:00 every Thursday afternoon. Located next to Carilion's research center and medical school, organizers are hoping the location will remind people about one of the city's historic jewels.

"What I'm really trying to do is showcase the City Market because I think a lot of Roanokers tend to forget how special it is and how great it is and by bringing it to a different location in the city; pop it up somewhere else we get new customers and we showcase what we got," said Traci Hughes, Downtown Roanoke, Inc.

The market also invited a variety of food trucks if you are looking for dinner. The market will be held every Thursday through the end of August.
