Snuggly situated in the Blue Ridge foothills, lies a sleepy village called Orlean. And in the center of that village, you can find "downtown Orlean" consisting of a tiny post office, a charming antique shop, a volunteer fire department, and the Orlean Market. The sprawling pastoral views and casual energy in this old-world farming community make Orlean a hidden gem, worthy of visitors who appreciate the slow-paced lifestyle. Casual, country, and charming are just a few words to describe us.
Orlean is a small unincorporated village in Fauquier County, Virginia, located approximately 50 miles (80 km) west of Washington, DC. Orlean is situated at the intersection of Leeds Manor Road (County Route 688) and John Barton Payne Road.
Sugar Loft at Orlean Market is situated on the second story of a historic home and general store. Downstairs is a convenience store, restaurant/pub, a deli, and filling station. Across the street is a quaint post office and the local volunteer fire department. A few houses away is The Village Green, a local and adorable antique shop. Historic and charming, both the village and the Sugar Loft accomodation is great for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

A little information about Orlean, Virginia...
The village of Orlean was territorially and culturally associated with the “Free State”, which was northwest of Warrenton and stretched up to Marshall. It included Orlean, Hume, Asheville, and Markham. Originally this area was owned by Thomas Fairfax, and after his death in 1781, the Marshall family inherited the land. Thomas Fairfax had leased sections of his land out to emigrant families making their way out west, but when the Marshall family took over and tried to collect rent, they were faced with resistance and disobedience. Gaining a reputation for lawlessness, the residents of this area were holding on to their land at all costs.
Beyond the sale of food and drinks, one of the more important benefits of the market’s rebirth is the installation of functioning gas pumps. The nearest gas station is over five miles away. The current front entrance space is a deli & convenience store. Upstairs you can find a market space that maintains the convenience store essentials for locals. There will be a cafe area in the middle portion of the building connected to a nice size patio. Working with local wineries, we are the first Northern Virginia Piedmont Regional Hub by 2020.

- This is a historic building established in 1870
It's believed that the village of Orlean was named after Andrew Jackson's victory in 1815 at the Battle of New Orleans. The Orlean Market, originally established in 1870, served as a community establishment connecting the people of the “Free State”. The Orlean Store is located at the corner of Routes 688 and 732 in Fauquier County. The market has served the community for many years.
Providing asylum from the harsh winter between Warrenton and Marshall or acting as the center for business conducted in the area, the Orlean Market has always provided the community with exactly what it needs. Today, Fauquier County is bountiful in its varieties of local wineries and local farms which Orlean Market loves supporting.
