Do you know where your groceries come from, how your meat was processed, or how your tomatoes were grown? If ever there was a reason to shop local, it's when it comes to your family's health. If ever there was a time to do it, it's August 6 for National Farmers Market Week!

The Fifes and Drums of York Town perform on the Riverwalk Landing performance stage at 10 a.m., and there will be an acoustical harmony performance by Audio Portrait from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Join us for kids' activities including hula hoops and corn hole, and don't forget to stop by the Yorktown Market Days information booth to pick up free "I Love Farmers Markets" temporary tattoos, stickers, and coloring sheets for the kids.

Visit Yorktown Market Days for a sensory experience like none other. Be enveloped in the smoky smell of barbecue and sweet aroma of kettle corn-carried by the breeze blowing in off the York River. Get lost in the vibrant colors of fresh produce as you stop to admire the farmers' selections of hot and sweet peppers. Admire the work of local artists. More than 40 local vendors set up their tables along the beautiful York River during this special market. 

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic-all York County sponsored and partner community events are subject to postponement or cancellation. This includes changes to dates, times, and locations.
