Late summer meets fall at the Market where we still have the best tomatoes, corn, peaches, and hot peppers, but you will now see plums, apples, and pears. There’s also grass-fed hamburger, lamb sausage, yogurt, cheese, eggs, milk, mushrooms, garlic, basil, fresh cut flowers and more
The Market continues its SNAP (EBT Food Stamps) program. To help lower economic barriers to local, healthy food, the HLFM matches up to $20 each participant each week with HLFM Bonus Bucks. SNAP participants are encouraged to come to the SNAP tent at the Market to pick up the bonus $20 in tokens to use at the Market. In addition to SNAP, the Historic Lewes Farmers Market welcomes participants in Delaware’s Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program. WIC coupons can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at the Market. Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) coupons are also welcome.
The Market is open every Saturday from 8 am to noon. There’s lots of parking at the Shields Elementary School and Lewes School Parking lots, just off the corner of Savannah Road and Sussex Drive and a short walk to the Market. At the Saturday market, a Veggie Valet service is provided to help customers carry bags back to their cars. This service is located right outside the HLFM Information Tent.
Customers who want to know what is happening at the Market each Saturday should subscribe to the HLFM newsletter sent to customers on Thursdays. Newsletter is free. To be included, customers may send their email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And don’t forget about the Wednesday market at Crooked Hammock Brewery (Crooked Hammock Way and Kings Highway) from 8 to 11 am. This market’s last day is August 29.
Consistent with its mission, the HLFM is committed to supporting farmers who grow local fruits and vegetables — a “real” farmers market that is producer-only.
