Visit the market’s website by clicking here

This market takes place rain or shine!

For everyone’s safety & comfort, the market is a smoke-free and pet-free space (except for service animals).

No soliciting or surveying by any political, religious or other special cause groups or individuals is permitted at the market.

NEW THIS YEAR: We’re collecting food donations for the York Food Pantry on Saturdays! The food pantry is able to accept perishable items from our market, which means you can donate produce! For example, come to the market, buy two heads of lettuce, keep one and donate the other – it’s that easy! You’ll find a table & box set up at the market for you to leave items. Food pantry representatives will be by to collect everything at the end of the market.
