Yorktown Market Days joins 349 other markets across Virginia in celebrating National Farmers Market Week on Saturday, August 7 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. With six small family-owned and operated farms set up at Riverwalk Landing each week—shoppers are bound to find their go-to favorites and also get the opportunity to try new varieties of fruits and vegetables in addition to pasture-raised meats. Products from these farmers go through just a few hands—the farmers’ and customers’—before reaching the plate.
The first 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.
Yorktown’s award-winning offerings and waterfront location make it one of the most unique farmers markets in Hampton Roads. It is a one-stop shop for seasonal produce, farm meats and seafood, fresh poultry and eggs, artisan breads and scratch-made desserts, honey, jams, and sauces, flowers, plants, and herbs, coffee, tea, fresh-pressed juices, and wine, high-quality art, and even gourmet dog treats!
