December 2, 2018

Approximately 39,000 customers visited the Historic Lewes Farmers Market during one of the rainiest market seasons in 13 years.

The Historic Lewes Farmers Market thanks the farmers/producers, the volunteers, and the Lewes community for braving the weather to support the farmers markets on Saturday at George H.P. Smith Park and on Wednesdays at Crooked Hammock Brewery.
