YORKTOWN — For those who are over being inside and also do not mind the cold, the Yorktown Market Days Winter Markets are just what you need.

On four Saturdays in January, February and March, vendors and artists from all over Virginia will be selling their wares along Riverwalk Landing, 331 Water St.

Visitors can enjoy a wide array of warm food and drinks as they shop for eggs, meats, and seasonal products offered for sale. There will also be various pieces of art, baked goods and homewares and much more.

The markets will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Jan. 29, Feb. 12, Feb. 26 and March 12.

The Fifes and Drums of York Town will give a special performance on each of those dates starting at 11 a.m.
