Shop Our Award-Winning Waterfront Farmers Market

2018 Market Days Logo

Our waterfront farmers market is one of the most unique in Hampton Roads—offering spectacular views of the York River; live music every week; food trucks; chef cooking demonstrations; and a variety of vendors and artists! This year, the season starts mid-April, and you can enjoy weekly markets through the end of October. 


What to Expect

Every Saturday, from Apr. 14 - Oct. 27, you’ll discover something new! 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 and artisans. Talk to farmers, ranchers, watermen, and food entrepreneurs face-to-face to learn about their techniques for growing, catching, and maintaining the highest quality products to offer you and your family. (Exceptions: May 5 & Oct. 6)

NEW This Year

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. ATMs are conveniently located at Ben & Jerry’s and Yorktown Pub.
