The Historic Lewes Farmers Market will continue its season from 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Sept. 15, in George H.P. Smith Park, Johnson and DuPont avenues, Lewes. Customers can find apples, plums, figs, sweet peppers, green beans, sweet corn, mushrooms, tomatoes, squash, and everything else for the dinner table including grass-fed beef, lamb and pork. For breakfast there’s Canadian bacon, eggs, croissants, milk, yogurt, jams and honey, along with beautiful cut-flower bouquets to grace any table.
The market is open rain or shine. In case of inclement weather, the market moves to Shields Elementary School parking lot at Savannah Road and Sussex Drive.
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. In addition to SNAP, the Historic Lewes Farmers Market welcomes participants in Delaware's Women, Infants and Children program. WIC coupons can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at the market. Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons are also welcome.
The market is open every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon, with lots of parking at the Shields Elementary School and Lewes School parking lots. A Veggie Valet service is provided to help customers carry bags to their cars. This service is located right outside the HLFM Information Tent.
