As we transition from summer to fall, the biggest changes at Yorktown Market Days are the tomatoes replaced with squash and the strawberries with figs! Every Saturday, through the end of October, you’re still guaranteed to find the same great selection of seasonal produce in addition to grass-fed meats, fresh seafood, flowers, baked goods, and other specialty items.
This fall, our market includes special events featuring hay rides, art exhibits, live music, cooking demonstrations, and even a day dedicated to pets!
Join us as we kick off the new season with Fall Arts. During the next two months, you’ll find the largest number of artists at any given market. There are close to 30 local painters, photographers, jewelers, and woodworkers on the schedule this year. This amazing local talent produces everything from beautiful sea glass jewelry to original and ornate wood carvings.
