The Rehoboth Beach Farmers Market will open for the season from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday, May 4, at Grove Park.
The market operates every Tuesday from May through October. Required COVID-19 restrictions include wearing a mask, social distancing and limiting the number of customers in the park at one time.
Guests should look for the tents in Grove Park near the lighthouse circle, behind the Rehoboth Beach Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center.
Parking for the market is free from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot next to the park, as well as on Sussex Street, Columbia and Henlopen avenues, and the cross streets. Parking is prohibited on both sides of Grove Street.
This season, there are approximately 38 vendors, many of whom have been with the market since its inception 16 years ago. Prepared food is available for lunch, which can be eaten at the picnic tables in the park or taken home. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, food cannot be eaten within the market area.
Market bags and produce bags will be for sale at the entrance. Proceeds go toward maintaining the nonprofit Rehoboth Beach Farmers Market, operated by a board of directors and Market Master Pat Coluzzi. Many board members are full-time market volunteers.

The Rehoboth Beach Farmers Market is true to its motto of real food, real farmers, and real community. Coluzzi and the vendors are eager to welcome the Rehoboth Beach and surrounding communities for its 16th season of providing fresh, healthy, delicious home-grown food products.
