The market moves to Shields Elementary School parking lot Oct. 2 with fall hours of 9 a.m. to noon.

The HLFM’s Wednesday market at Crooked Hammock Brewery is open from 8 to 11 a.m., with 10 farmers/producers: 302 Aquaponics, Baywater Farms, Bodine Farms, Dittmar Family Farms, Hattie’s Garden, Jackie Blues, Kalmar Farm, Mandala Pies, Stag Run Farm, and Totem Farms. This market runs through Sept. 29.

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 to pick up the bonus $20 in tokens to use at the market. WIC and SFMNP coupons are also accepted at the market.

The HLFM also continues its partnership with the Epworth United Methodist Church Food Pantry. Market customers who want to help feed the local community may purchase local produce, meats, milk, and other food from growers at the market to donate to the Epworth program every Saturday. At the end of the market, the produce and other foods are gathered and given to Epworth. The HLFM thanks its customers for their generosity.

In case of inclement weather, the market moves to Shields Elementary School parking lot at Savannah Road and Sussex Drive.
