Market Days - Maritime Market

Saturday, November 9, 2019

As part of The 2019 Commemoration, American Evolution, Yorktown Market Days is excited to pay tribute to Virginia’s history and heritage by honoring, celebrating, and preserving the proud traditions of the men and women who have made a living for centuries on the Chesapeake Bay and its estuaries—including the York River.

Everyone is invited to “Come Home to Virginia” during Yorktown’s inaugural Maritime Market as part of the Commonwealth’s Customs, Cultures, and Cuisine Festival taking place throughout November all across the state. 

During this extended farmers market, sample some of the best seafood in the area including oysters, clam chowder, and Virginia blue crabs. Don't miss two amazing seafood chef demonstrations (with limited samples for the crowd!). Chef Tina at Coastal Thirst will be making her Garlic Lime Shrimp over Avocado-Cilantro Lime Slaw and Chef Brian at Riverwalk Restaurant will show us how to make the perfect Lobster Roll!

Pirates will once again invade the waterfront for this special occasion to talk to kids about seafaring life and there will be hands-on activities and interactive programs for sea lovers of all ages.

Come by land – or by boat! The Riverwalk Landing Piers will offer prime parking spots for those looking to tie up and explore the market, and will be the landing spot for several Coast Guard vessels and the Schooner Virginia that day so visitors can view and explore.
