Blue Ridge Country Store


Tucked in the historic downtown mall in Charlottesville, Virginia you will find a healthy salad bar, delicatessen, bakery, and country market. With a nice selection of breakfast sandwiches, hearty soups, and tasty lunches it has become a staple of locals looking for a quick, delicious bite to eat. A focus on a variety of local food and beverages means there is something for everyone. For those with a sweeter sensibility, there are fresh baked cookies and a large selection of nostalgic candies. This old-timey little market will keep you coming back to taste the world locally.


Local, Friendly, Unique

Here at the Blue Ridge Country Store we pride ourselves on offering a great mix of healthy, local food that is prepared with love. We source as much as possible from our local partners and pride ourselves on these relationships. “Local” food has become a trendy word that has lost its core meaning. To us, it’s about community and doing right by our neighbors and friends. We take the inclusion of everyone seriously because everyone deserves love.

“As someone who spends a lot of time downtown, Blue Ridge Country Store is one of the best spots. From an amazing salad bar with much variety, to managers and cashiers willing to help customers out, BRCS is an underrated gem that I believe everyone should go to if they ever are in Charlottesville during the week.”

“Great country store. Fresh food, canned jams, butters, vegetables, milk, yogurt, bbq sauces, magnets, postcards, salad bar, candy, etc. The prices are reasonable and the staff members are friendly. Great downtown store…”

“One of my definite go-tos for lunch. I can’t even imagine how much work goes into prepping that salad bar everyday! Its always fresh and has so much variety. Thank you so much… You make eating healthy so easy for me!”

“They have so many great options. Cool drinks, great food, amazing cookies, great prices. They have excellent wraps ready to go that taste like they were just made. 10/10 recommend.”

“A great, quick lunch spot if you work on the downtown mall–huge salad bar, excellent house made soups, breakfast biscuits, and other lunch options. Plus you can grab a 6 pack of craft beer, fresh fruit and more for a good price.”
