The Historic Lewes Farmers Market will be open from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Oct. 2, at Shields Elementary School, Savannah Road and Sussex Drive, to begin the fall season. New Saturday vendors include Bodine Farms selling beef and pork, and Reid Angus Farm selling dry-aged, premium Angus beef and jerky.
This Saturday, customers can look for pumpkins, many apple varieties, apple cider and apple cider donuts, broccoli, cauliflower, autumn squashes, sweet potatoes, Asian and Bartlett pears, radishes, green beans, chard, baby bok choi, microgreens, romaine lettuce, arugula, potatoes, garlic, onions, jams, eggs, yogurt, milk, ice cream, mushrooms, chicken, pork, beef, lamb, crabs, oysters, honey, and much more. The market will be at Shields each Saturday through Nov. 20, rain or shine.
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 can come to the SNAP tent to pick up the bonus $20 in tokens to use at the market. WIC and SFMNP coupons will also be accepted at the market.
The HLFM continues its partnership with Epworth United Methodist Church Food Pantry. HLFM customers may purchase local produce, meats, milk, and other food from vendors to donate to the Epworth program every Saturday. The produce and other foods are gathered after each market session and given to Epworth. The HLFM thanks its customers for their generosity.
