About Market Salamander

Book A Table

Locally sourced for the passionate palate

Market Salamander is a charismatic gourmet market located in the charming village of Middleburg, VA just steps away from Salamander Resort & Spa. 

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.

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.

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.
