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!
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. Talk to farmers, ranchers, watermen, and food entrepreneurs to learn their techniques for growing, catching, and maintaining the highest quality products to offer you and your family.

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. NEW this year, the market also participates in Virginia’s Fresh Match Program. SNAP customers get one dollar for every dollar they spend on fruits and vegetables. It’s easy! Just visit our information tent at the market to learn more.
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.
