About Us

Lewis Creek Market is located in the old Livery Stable at the foot of Church Street in the Newtown Historic District of Staunton, VA. The 1905 building, a stone’s throw from the old railroad bridge, and overlooking Lewis Creek, not only has a beautiful market, specializing in local Virginia products, but also includes a tasting room and deli.  There is an inviting outdoor patio, perfect for socializing in a casual atmosphere.

The tasting room is open to the public, as a venue for educational events, and is also available for booking for private parties.
