2022 Winter Markets

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all of our vendors, customers, and sponsors who helped make 2021 another successful year for Yorktown Market Days! We believe in the power of shopping local; customers find one-of-a-kind products and the freshest produce, while our economy benefits from the investment in small businesses. 

We’re happy to share that you won’t have to wait until spring to shop your favorite vendors again; this year we’ll have FOUR winter markets!

Our waterfront farmers market is one of the most unique in Hampton Roads—offering spectacular views of the York River, food trucks, and a variety of vendors and artists! Shop for seasonal produce, fresh seafood, meats, breads, handmade soaps and candles, honey, gourmet dog treats, and a beautiful display of work from local artists. 

The 2022 season starts April 9 and the market runs every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. (except May 7 & Oct. 1) through the end of October. Be on the lookout for several extended markets with fun family-friendly themes, especially during the holidays!

We Accept SNAP!

Yorktown Market Days is excited to participate in the USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to help ensure all families in our community have access to fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy food options. Qualifying participants will be able to purchase special tokens with their SNAP-EBT cards they can then use at participating vendors. In addition to SNAP-EBT cards, many vendors accept credit cards. However, some only take cash. ATMs are conveniently located at Ben & Jerry’s and Yorktown Pub.
