Bundle Up and Join Us for the First Winter Market – Saturday, January 30
For the first time in Yorktown Market Day history, we are holding three winter markets, with the first one tomorrow (Saturday, Jan. 30). Join us at the waterfront from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to shop for locally grown, produced and crafted products. Grab a cup of hot coffee from Column 15 or a steaming bowl of deliciousness from Kathi’s Clam Chowder. Eggs, meats, seasonal produce, and so much more are waiting for you at the market! Don’t miss a special performance by the Fifes and Drums of York Town at 11 a.m. Additional markets are scheduled for February 13 and March 6. Tourism Development has been hard at work planning events for us to enjoy while practicing safe social distancing and following the Governor’s COVID guidelines. For a list of market vendors, visit the Market Days website.

Who Maintains Roads and Ditches? Watch “VDOT or Not” for the Answer
York County Department of Public Works and the Virginia Department of Transportation work together to maintain operations in the County. This includes sewer maintenance, landscaping, and clearing the roads of wet, wintery weather like we experienced this week (and will likely see in the upcoming days!). But there is often confusion over who maintains our streets, road signs, traffic signs, and ditches. One of the most common questions we have is about roadside ditches. This video can help you understand who is responsible for these services, and who to call when assistance is needed. Thanks for watching!
