Saturday, Oct. 16 will be a morning dedicated to our firefighters, sheriff's deputies, 911 & emergency communications dispatchers, public works officials, and other first responders who keep our community safe. Stop by to let them know how much we appreciate them!
Enjoy spectacular views of the York River, live music, food trucks, and a variety of vendors! Shop for seasonal produce; pasture raised beef and pork; breads; coffee, tea, juice, and wine; handmade soaps and candles; honey; gourmet dog treats; and a beautiful display of work from local artists and artisans.
Several emergency vehicles and officials will be on site to educate and answer questions. You won't be able to miss the York County Fire & Life Safety ladder truck as you arrive to the waterfront! The York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office will also have a patrol car, crime prevention trailer, DARE tent, motorcycles, K-9 unit, and maybe even their drone at the market that day. Public Works will have a large Vactor Truck used to handle large-scale liquid and sludge clean-up.
Don't miss this special opportunity to say "thank you" and "we appreciate you."
Several vendors and artists will provide discounts to first responders who shop the market. Visit Yorktown Market Days on Facebook for more information leading up to the event.
