Haymarket is a town in Prince William County, Virginia. Haymarket owes its location to the Iroquois as the center of the town was their hunting path. The town of Haymarket was formally founded in 1799 on the land of William Skinker. Haymarket was incorporated in 1882, the second town in Prince William County to do so. From 1882 to today, much of central Haymarket has remained the same.
