Glenn Feldmann Darby and Goodlatte's Food Festival 2012, which highlights locally-grown and sold foods, packed them in tonight on First Street side of the downtown building. The Roanoke law firm is one of the sponsors of the West End Market, which sells food in an economically depressed area of the city on Wednesdays during the growing season. the popular farmer's market concept is spreading in Roanoke, as well, with the recent expansion of City Market to the Downtown YMCA on Wednesdays and a weekly farmer's market at Carilion. Here's a little of what the festival looked like this evening, just after work.
