September 22, 2022

The Historic Lewes Farmers Market will be open from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 24, at George H.P. Smith Park.

Ian Crandall, owner and executive chef of Kindle restaurant, will offer a demo at 10 a.m., preparing Enoch Farms Pork Paillards with Calvados-sage beurre blanc, and a sauté of Fifer Orchards Autumn Crisp apples, shaved Brussels sprouts and Enoch Farms bacon.

This week brings pumpkins (small, large, orange, ghost and green), decorative gourds, butternut squash (great for fall soups), acorn squash, cabbage, lima beans, broccoli, baby kale, figs, apple cider, pears, apples, green beans, multicolor radishes, beets, spring and regular onions, shallots, garlic, gold and red potatoes, cucumbers, and sweet and hot peppers. There are still slicing and cherry tomatoes, sweet corn, arugula, lettuces, summer squash, pork sausages, chops and ribs, tilapia fish, oysters, live crabs, hand-picked crab meat, crabcakes, crab salad, grass-fed chicken, ground lamb, and beef (ground beef, filet mignon, New York strip, sirloin, skirt, flank and Bayette steaks), honey, mushrooms, eggs, yogurt, milk, butter, ice cream, kombucha, jams, mustards, chutney, fresh-baked breads, pastries made with fruit from market vendors, apple cider donuts, cut-flower bouquets, locally roasted coffee and coffee drinks, and more. The Historic Lewes Farmers Market is producer-only, so customers are able to buy directly from the farmer who grew the produce. 

The Historic Lewes Farmers Market and Lewes Public Library continue Children’s Storytime at the Market through September. Library volunteers read books about farming, healthy eating, gardening and nature at 10 a.m. in the yellow tent.

As of Saturday, Oct. 1, and through Nov. 19, the market moves to the Lewes Elementary School parking lot at 820 Savannah Road, where it normally sets up during inclement weather. Fall hours are 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Wednesday Market at Crooked Hammock Brewery is open weekly with farmers and bakers from 8 to 11 a.m. through Sept. 28. Dogs at the markets must be under control on a six-foot, non-retractable leash.

The market processes SNAP, WIC and SFMNP, and continues to match SNAP up to $20 per market, per customer. Customers may go to the SNAP tent to process SNAP/EBT.

The HLFM continues its food pantry purchase program. 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 this program every Saturday. At the end of the market, the produce and other foods are gathered and given to various food pantries including Epworth church and Casa San Francisco. The market team thanks customers for their generosity.

The circle in front of the Fred Thomas Building at the foot of Dupont Avenue will be open for handicap drop-off and pickup. Beebe Healthcare is generously allowing market customers to park in its outside parking lots; go to to see parking and vendor information with maps. The market’s weekly newsletter lists demos and more. Email or call 302-644-1436 to be added to the list.
