ROANOKE, Va. — There's Fork in the Alley, Fork in the City, and now Fork in the Market.

Roanoke City Councilman David Trinkle opened his latest eatery over the weekend at Roanoke's City Market.

The menu is a smaller version of his other two restaurants. One item should keep the downtown crowd happy -- late-night pizza's are back.

Fork in the Market will sell $5 pizzas from a window every Saturday night just like other downtown restaurants did in the past.

The opening of Fork in the Market means the City Market Building is now 81 percent leased.

"Everytime a new restaurant opens it's not only great for the new restaurant but everybody else in the building as well," Sara Guerry, the Market Building manager said. "It generates a whole new group of traffic."

BubbleTea is scheduled to open at the city market in the next week or so.

It will sell a variety of specialty drinks.
