Community Market of Blacksburg opened in June 2013 by a group of native farmers market vendors compassionate to expand access to local foods in the community. The Community Market is a community driven farmers market that embodies the essence of collaboration and circular leadership with vendors, farmers, consumers, and community members. We always welcome your insight, suggestions, and volunteering your time to the market.
Our mission is to expand Farmers Market opportunities for local farmers, food producers & artisans, accommodate community needs, and to expand consumption of nutritious, local fresh foods in the New River Valley Region.
Our vision is to create a vibrant, community-supported market that supports local farms & businesses and connects community members and local farms together; sustaining the growth of Farms & Markets for future generations by establishing partnerships and providing ongoing education to help sustain the health and well-being of community members, contribute to economic growth and provide nutritional support starting from the soil up.
