Yorktown Winter Markets 2023
Winter Markets on the Yorktown Waterfront Begin in February and run through March 18!
This is your lucky day! Join us for Yorktown Market Days’ final Winter Market on Saturday, March 18, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Riverwalk Landing. Our St. Patrick’s Day Market will have you clicking your heels in delight as you shop from nearly 60 vendors and artists selling locally grown, produced, and crafted products. You won’t see four-leaf clovers, but you will find a vast selection of baked goods, prepared soups, gourmet chocolates, homemade candles, dog treats, local art, and more! Be sure to bring the kids.
Check out these events at the Market as well….
- 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.: St. Patrick’s Day Treasure Hunt for kids.
- The Fifes and Drums of York Town perform
The Yorktown Trolley will be running during this event.
We know the weather is unpredictable year-round, so in the case of inclement weather, just as during the regular season, the market will move to the lower level of the Water Street Parking Terrace.
Visitors can enjoy a steaming cup of hot coffee 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! There will be one more winter market on Saturday March 18 (St. Patrick’s Day Theme), each one from 10 AM to 2 PM. ***These are Rain or Shine Markets – In case of inclement weather the market will move to the lower level of the Parking Terrace. See the themed 2023 Themed Markets below.
