Yorktown Market Days has been serving the Peninsula for more than 15 years. The Market is a way for families of all economic backgrounds to access fresh, nutritious food as close to the source as possible—the region’s farmers, chefs, and food artisans. Yorktown Market Days is also a proud participant in the USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
This season includes 32 weekly markets with several themed Saturdays offering extended hours and additional fun activities such as live trade demonstrations, educational programming, performances by the Fifes and Drums of York Town, and family photo opportunities. Highlights include but are not limited to, the Pirate Invasion Market, Vintage Market, Fun in the Sun Market, First Responders Markets, Fall Festival, Harvest Festival, and Paws at the River. The Market runs Saturdays through the end of October, rain or shine, with the exceptions of May 7 and October 1.
