The Halifax Community College Small Business Center (HCC SBC) is excited to invite the Roanoke Valley to the Twilight Market on Thursday, Oct. 3.

The Twilight Market is an opportunity for artists, farmers, designers, and all other creative residents to display their talents. Held at the newly renovated HCC SBC greenhouse, the event is the opportunity for entrepreneurs in the area to get a jump-start on their business.

“Our Twilight Market and Greenhouse Hub ribbon cutting is intended to celebrate the re-opening of our greenhouse as an entrepreneurial ecosystem,” said Kelly Barber, HCC SBC director. “The market will provide local businesses, growers, makers, HCC, and our community opportunities to sell their handmade and home grown products. In addition, it provides support for shopping local.  We like to think of it as sharing the local love.”

The goal is for the Twilight Market to grow into a monthly event, allowing all residents to buy the very best – and buy local. By promoting an entrepreneurial spirit in the Roanoke Valley, the entire community will benefit.

“We envision future Twilight Markets being sponsored by local organizations so we can keep our community plugged into the Greenhouse Hub activities,” Barber said. “We are hopeful the hustle and bustle of a local flea/farmers market, arts/crafts fair, and festival – without the early morning, weekend time frame - will not only support our entrepreneurs, but provide a fun, social event for our community.”

The Twilight Market will open at 4:30 p.m. on October 3. 

The following vendors and organizations will attend: ABC2, Osaka World Peace Gardens, Food Cures U, Nature’s Manna, Dada’s Fresh Vegetables, Demetrius Ellis, Margaret Murga, Meherrin River Farm, Beautiful Bloomers, Double or Nothing Quality Sound Productions, Family Flavored Ice, Café 300, The Jerky Man, and Andy’s Kettle Corn.

The event is free and open to the public.
