Yorktown Market Days - National Farmers Market Week Kick-Off

Saturday, August 6, 2022

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 at Yorktown Market Days' National Farmers Market Week Kick-Off!

Join us at Riverwalk Landing on Saturday, August 6, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. as we kick-off National Farmers Market Week. The second week in August is designated every summer to recognize the impact farmers markets across the country have on their communities—by preserving farmland through economic viability and encouraging engagement between neighbors. Products from these farms go through just two hands—the farmer and customer—before reaching the plate.

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. Admire the work of local artists. More than 40 local vendors set up their tables along the beautiful York River during this special market. The Fifes and Drums of York Town perform on the Riverwalk Landing performance stage at 10 a.m. on August 6, and there will be an acoustical harmony performance by Audio Portrait from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Join us for kids’ activities including hula hoops and corn hole, and don’t forget to stop by the Yorktown Market Days information booth to pick up free “I Love Farmers Markets” temporary tattoos, stickers, and coloring sheets for the kids.

We’ll Meet You… at the Market!   www.yorktownmarketdays.com
