COVID-19 Safety Procedures
We are taking important precautions to keep our customers and vendors safe amidst COVID-19 concerns, including required spacing between vendors and a setup to avoid congestion in typically high-traffic areas. Vendors and staff who are engaging with customers are required to wear face coverings, and there will be no open sampling of any food. Hand sanitizer stations will be set up as you enter, as well as signs stating that no one with a fever or symptoms of COVID-19, or known exposure to a COVID-19 case in the prior 14 days, is permitted to shop the market.
Many vendors plan to offer preorder, prepayment, and pickup options to minimize contact. Please reach out to individual businesses to communicate plans and make arrangements.
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. NEW this year, the market also participates in Virginia’s Fresh Match Program. SNAP customers get one dollar for every dollar they spend on fruits and vegetables. It’s easy! Just visit our information tent at the market to learn more.
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.
