It’s Your Chance to Say “Thank You”
to Our Everyday Local Heroes!
Our inaugural First Responders Market will be a morning dedicated to our firefighters, sheriff's deputies, 911 & emergency communications dispatchers, public works officials, and other healthcare and first responders who keep our community safe. Stop by on Oct. 17 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. to let them know how much we appreciate them! Many vendors and artists will also be providing discounts to first responders who show up to shop the market.
Enjoy spectacular views of the York River, live music, food trucks, and a variety of vendors! Shop for seasonal produce; fresh seafood and meats; breads; fresh-cut flowers; handmade soaps and candles; honey; gourmet dog treats; and a beautiful display of work from local artists and artisans.
Several emergency vehicles and officials will be on site that day to educate and answer questions. You won't be able to miss the York County Fire & Life Safety ladder truck! The York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office will also have a patrol car, crime prevention trailer, DARE tent, motorcycles, K-9 unit, and maybe even their drone at the market that day. Public Works will have a large Vactor Truck that's used to handle large-scale liquid and sludge clean-up. They're used where any large-scale liquid transport is necessary!
Don't miss a special performance from the Fifes and Drums of York Town at 10 a.m.
