There will also be several free children's activities activities sponsored by Parks Orthodontics including farm-themed face painting designs for the kids from Mandy's Fancy Custom Artwork, free I Love Farmers Markets stickers and temporary tattoos handed out at the Parks booth, painted rocks hidden around the market for younger visitors to discover, and a fun coloring activity.
"Choosing healthy, nutritious food is a huge part of good dental health," said Dr. Meredith Parks. "Parks Orthodontics supports our local farmers market and our community by teaching our patients to choose foods that are good for their teeth and gums, and their overall health. We believe that getting kids excited about the food they eat will get them excited about making healthy choices for their entire lives."
There is no charge for the market and it is held rain or shine. Free parking is available in several designated areas throughout Historic Yorktown. The Trolley, also complimentary for guests, runs daily in the summer from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. While most vendors accept credit cards, some only take cash. ATMs are conveniently located at Ben & Jerry's and Yorktown Pub.
Yorktown Market Days is held every Saturday through the end of October (excluding October 5), and is presented by York County and the Riverwalk Landing Business Association.
