Yorktown Winter Markets 2022
Saturdays: January 29th, February 12, February 26, March 12
10 AM to 2 PM
425 Water Street
Tired of being cooped up inside? Bundle up and head out to Yorktown’s winter markets! On select Saturdays in January, February, and March, vendors and artists will line the Historic Yorktown waterfront, selling products grown, produced, and crafted locally. Visitors can enjoy a steaming cup of hot coffee or hearty soup as they shop for eggs, meats, and seasonal products offered for sale. Other vendors will provide an array of baked goods; homemade candles and soaps; gourmet chocolates; peanuts and brittle; dog treats; beautiful local art (including jewelry and woodwork); and so much more!
Yorktown’s three winter markets were so popular and well-attended last year that they decided to add a fourth one in 2022! The four winter markets this year are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on January 29, February 12 (Valentine’s Day Market), February 26, and March 12 (St. Patrick’s Day Market) with a special performance from the Fifes and Drums of York Town at 11 a.m. for each event.
