Need to get some fresh air and do some shopping at the same time? Bundle up and head to Yorktown's winter markets! On select Saturdays in February and March from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., vendors and artists will line the waterfront selling locally grown, produced, and crafted products. Visitors can enjoy a cup of hot coffee or steaming soup as they shop. Local farms will sell eggs, meats, and seasonal produce. Other vendors will provide a variety of baked goods; homemade candles and soaps; gourmet chocolates; scarves and mittens; flowers; spices; beautiful local art (including jewelry and woodwork), and more. Food trucks will also be parked to serve patrons throughout the markets. The winter markets are held February 25th, March 4th, and March 18th (St. Patrick’s Day) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
