About Us

New Orleans flavor in the Roanoke Valley

The alligators on the corner of Campbell and Wall Streets are a tribute to the Crescent City, and the Cajun inspiration behind Bayou Snowballs. The shop, owned by Crystal Ware, offers shaved ice, a flavored treat popular in New Orleans.

Bayou snowballs come in about 36 different flavors, including seasonal and special offerings.

“The City Market Building fits the vision of what I wanted for this business,” Ware said. “And kids love a Bayou snowball, no matter what the season.”

With plenty of outdoor seating at a prime location, Bayou Snowballs is a great place to treat yourself.


We look forward to serving you!
