National Farmers Market Week

Saturday, August 10, 2019

Do you know where your groceries come from—how your meat was processed or how your tomatoes were grown? If ever there was a reason to shop local, it’s when it comes to your family’s health. If ever there was a time to do it, it’s August 10 for National Farmers Market Week!

Visit Yorktown Market Days for a sensory experience like none other. Be enveloped in the smoky smell of barbecue and sweet aroma of kettle corn—carried by the breeze blowing in off the York River. Get lost in the vibrant colors of fresh produce as you stop to admire the farmers’ selections of hot and sweet peppers. Tap your foot to the tunes of Audio Portrait—live music that further enhances an already festive ambiance. And admire the work of local artists. There’s no other farmers market like Yorktown! Come see why we are the GOLD winner of Best Farmers Market in all of Hampton Roads, by the readers of Coastal Virginia Magazine

There will also be several fun and FREE children's activities sponsored by Parks Orthodontics, including face painting and a coloring activity. Be sure to stop by their booth for free "I Love Farmers Markets" stickers and temporary tattoos. And be on the lookout for farm-themed rocks hidden throughout the market area that morning!
