Macarons, crepes baguettes and croissants: This year’s authentic French Market will return for its seventh year later this month.

Sponsored by Sister Cities Yorktown, the market will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 21 at Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown, according to a Sister Cities news release.

The market features street vendors and a DJ who will play a selection of French music. Vendors will sell Hummingbird’s Parisian macarons, Chef K Crepes, Creekside baguettes and croissants, Annika Baker French dresses and smocks, France Naturals beauty products, Sinful Treats’ baguettes and more, the release said.

There will also be flowers and fresh produce, which as intended to resemble a real market in Port-Vendres, France, the release said.

Sister Cities Yorktown is a group chartered by Sister Cities International that focuses on “fostering a culture of citizen diplomacy” between Yorktown and its sister city, Port-Vendres in France.

The relationship has been in place since 1990, the release said.

A flea market, the “marche aux puce,” will also included French linens, pottery, art, French art books, travel books and cookbooks.
