Yorktown Market Days

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. 

Our award-winning market is now available year-round with the addition of winter markets on select Saturdays in February and March. We know the weather is unpredictable, so in the case of inclement weather, just as during the regular season, the market will move to the lower level of the Water Street Parking Terrace.

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. An ATM is conveniently located at Ben & Jerry’s.
