City Market, Roanoke

3.8
The City Market Building in Downtown Roanoke, VA is an iconic historical building that has housed decades of entrepreneurs. Originally constructed as a meat market, the City Market Building has transformed with the times, but has always remained a center for economic activity and a hub for Downtown business.

Most recently the City Market Building underwent a $7.9 million renovation, closing in 2010 and reopening in September 2011. Through the renovation the City of Roanoke sought to reinvigorate the aging building while maintaining her historical traits and eclectic appeal. The first floor and mezzanines received a facelift, with new kitchens, lighting, and exposed brick walls. The renovation reflects the meat market era with the clean white tiles and concrete floors, while a bright, open, airy central garden in the middle of the first floor provides a welcoming eating environment for dining patrons.

The third floor of the City Market Building houses a premier Downtown event venue, Charter Hall. Capable of holding up to 500 people standing and 250 people seated, Charter Hall is a well appointed room with sophisticated styling and state of the art amenities.

Call the City Market Building office at 540-986-5992 for questions about renting Charter Hall.

  • In the heart of downtown lies the city market area. We found a parking are adjacent to the market that cost $5 for an hour or $7 for the day. Ummm...no brainer, pay the extra 2 bucks to have a leisure...  more »

  • I attended a political fundraiser on the second floor of this location and it's a great space. I like that we could see the shops below and there was plenty of space. It's a great area for a small par...  more »

  • Since the building's major interior renovation several years ago, the interior has lost its character and charm. For those looking for a more contemporary interior this is your place. Essentially equivalent to a mall food court with central area seating and the food kiosks on the perimeter. A few are empty. No chains. Basic fares such as sandwiches, Chinese, a gyro/kebab place, hot dogs, etc.
  • Neat and tidy place with several good food options. Also nice seating choices with regular tables and chairs or up in the loft areas some couches and coffee tables.
  • The jam on Wednesday night was phenomenal! I recommend checking out their jam if you're I'm the vicinity!
  • Place was loud! It was difficult to enjoy our meal because we couldn't hear each other. I felt like we were rushing to get out
  • Love downtown Roanoke! Excellent lamb gyros here
