A long awaited homecoming for the Trojan Dog


trojan-dog-website-incopy.jpgOn Saturday, February 13, Roanoke Fire-EMS celebrated the homecoming of our beloved Trojan Dog from its temporary location at Raleigh Court Library. Personnel helped relocate the installation with a grand homecoming, filled with lights and sirens.

This installation has been an adored fixture in the Raleigh Court community for over a decade. Ann Glover, the artist, first showcased this piece in the  City’s Second Art in Roanoke Temporary Exhibition in 2010. Ann created the first version of the dog out of marine paint and plywood. After an 18 month stint, the neighborhood rallied to work with the artist and the City to make the piece permanent in 2011. 

We are excited to have this cherished installation back home! 

Download a coloring page of the Trojan Dog here!

It was with heavy hearts that we had to cancel the vibrant Grandin Chillage concert series, and WinterFest for 2020 and 2021. We are anticipating starting 2022 Chillage events back up in the Spring.

We love each and every one of you and want nothing more than to see your smiling faces! Keep doing the right thing Villagers and we'll get through this. Here’s looking forward to a great 2022! ❤️

GRANDIN VILLAGE FARMERS MARKET

Local seasonal veggies!
Live music at the Farmers Market!
The market is located in the parking lot behind the CoLab.
 
Hours are: April through mid-November, 8 a.m. to noon. 
 
Recipients of SNAP, Pandemic-EBT, WIC, and Medicaid receive an additional dollar to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables for every dollar they spend at market. Stop by the Market Manager's tent before shopping to receive tokens that are used as cash to pay each vendor.
 

The Grandin Village Farmers Market (GVFM) supports local, sustainable agriculture by connecting the public with local farmers and food producers.

The GVFM features 100% locally produced products with an emphasis on organic, sustainable, and humane producers, products, and practices. All products are produced within 100 miles of the market location, with the exception of regional seafood from Virginia and North Carolina waters (only if the vendor is local) and coffee (only if the roaster is local).

The market is comprised of 20 farmers and food producers (See the map above.) featuring certified and non-certified organic veggies, fruit, herbs, seasonal seedlings, cheese, pasture raised/grass-fed chicken, beef, pork, and lamb, regional seafood,  locally roasted coffee, artisan homemade breads, muffins, baked goods, hot-prepared foods, and fresh-cut flowers.

The Grandin Village Farmers Winter Market will be in the same location as the summer market (the parking lot behind the CoLab), but will change to the third Saturday of every month, from 10 am to 1pm, November through March.
 
In 2021/22, those dates are: 11/20; 12/18; 01/15; 02/19; 03/19.
