The Roanoke Valley Locavore

Promoting the production of local foods in the Roanoke Valley.

LEAP Mobile Market

The LEAP Mobile Market brings local, healthy, and fresh food to communities throughout the City. The Mobile Market, a truck retrofitted to sell produce, makes weekly stops in neighborhoods without easy access to fresh produce. All stops are open to the public and we accept cash, debit, and EBT. All LEAP Mobile Market stops accept and double SNAP-EBT (food stamps) and we also double purchases made by Medicaid members.

Visit one of our 2017 stops (see schedule and map below)!
