Visit Yorktown Winter Market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on select Saturdays in February and March!

Warm up with a hot cup of coffee or bowl of soup while you shop for un-brr-lievable locally grown, produced, and crafted products like baked goods; homemade candles and soaps; gourmet chocolates; scarves and mittens; flowers; spices; handmade artwork; and more. Local farms will sell eggs, meats, and seasonal produce. Food trucks will also be stationed to serve patrons throughout the markets.

The winter markets will be held February 10 (Valentine’s Day Market), February 24, March 2, and March 16 (St. Patrick’s Day Market) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The official weekly Yorktown Market Days’ season begins on April 13 with the Go Green Market from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. to promote environmental sustainability. There will be several themed markets throughout 2024, many with extended hours to appeal to niche groups within the community—from animal and antique enthusiasts to history and water lovers! Stay tuned for details about our special Yorktown Victory Market on October 19, which will commemorate the Siege of Yorktown in 1781 and the Revolutionary War victory.
