Market Salamander is a charismatic gourmet market located in the charming village of Middleburg, VA just steps away from Salamander Resort & Spa. Recently it underwent a renovation enhancing the overall design, updating the kitchen concept, enhancing the menu, transforming the upstairs loft meeting space, and so much more to improve the relaxing ambiance of the destination.
Join us and enjoy an indulgent breakfast or lunch in the inviting café or outdoor patio, explore with one of our gourmet picnics to-go, take advantage of the full-service off-premise catering, or design your own custom cake for your next event. We invite you to discover a feast for the senses in Virginia’s horse and wine country at Market Salamander.
Market Salamander was Sheila C. Johnson’s first foray into the hospitality industry. After moving to the Middleburg area, and years before the acclaimed Salamander Resort & Spa opened its doors, the founder and CEO of Salamander Hotels & Resorts was drawn to purchase a former gun shop in the Village of Middleburg. Upon entering, you are quietly reminded of the village markets scattered throughout the Italian Piedmont. Guests are welcomed by the wonderful aromas from our open kitchen, enticing you to sample our daily specials and signature items. The cuisine at Market Salamander features fresh, homegrown ingredients and exclusive recipes to enjoy sophistication of a modern gourmet market in an idyllic small-town setting.

After moving to the Middleburg area, and years before she opened the acclaimed Salamander Resort & Spa, the founder and CEO of Salamander Hotels & Resorts had a vision to create a European-style market, which served fresh cuisine.
Just a 10-minute walk from the acclaimed Salamander Resort & Spa, the Market now complements the resort’s renowned on-site culinary program which includes Harrimans Virginia Piedmont Grill, Gold Cup Wine Bar, the Cooking Studio, in-room dining options, as well as banquets and catering services.
