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. 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.

Meet the Team

Executive Chef Nicholas Forlano

Air Force veteran born into a family of restaurateurs, Chef Nicholas (Nick) Forlano joins Market Salamander as Executive Chef. In his role, Chef Nick will be responsible for developing menus, crafting innovative dishes and cuisine, and managing and mentoring staff. Bringing his passion for locally inspired dishes, he plans to incorporate his family roots into the menu.

Chef Nick Forlano found his culinary calling at a young age growing up in Queens, New York, where he was exposed to a wide variety of cuisines. Under his mother's ownership of a family restaurant, a life-long passion for cooking emerged. At just 14, he worked his way around the kitchen quickly developing proficiency in prep work, line cooking and menu development.

Chef Nick previously was Executive Chef at the Ashby Inn and Chef de Cuisine at the Rail Stop Restaurant. In 2007, he opened and operated his very own Forlano's Market & Restaurant, a popular spot home to locally-sourced cuisine and homemade favorites. From there, his experience earned him titles as Executive Chef at Piedmont Golf Club, as well as the River Thornton Group

Chef Nick's ultimate goal is to provide a space for relationships to grow over locally-sourced food. He strongly believes that locally grown produce creates important economic opportunities, delivers health benefits, and holds opportunity to make a difference in a community. When not in a chef's coat, you might find Nick in a Phillies jersey cheering for his favorite team.
