The Historic Lewes Farmers Market Continues to Celebrate the Best of the Fall Harvest
This Saturday, October 21, the Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) continues with the best of fall harvest. The market will be held 9:00 am to noon in the parking lot of the Shields Elementary School off Savannah Road at Sussex Drive in Lewes. DE. Convenient parking can be found at the adjacent Lewes School parking lot.
Over 24 vendors will be at the Market through November 18 (Saturday before Thanksgiving) offering all the bounties of fall harvest: carrots, fresh ginger, sweet potatoes, lettuces, broccoli, cauliflower, winter squashes (including pumpkins), mushrooms, artisanal cheeses, apples, pears, cider, lamb, pork, oysters, freshly laid eggs, breads, jams and jellies, pastries, milk, yogurt and beautiful flowers for the table.
Please note that for the remainder of the 2017 season, there will be no Children's Reading Program, demonstrations, or bagels.
The Market offers the SNAP (EBT Food Stamps) program at the Market. 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 at the Market to pick up the bonus $20. In addition to SNAP, the Historic Lewes Farmers Market welcomes participants in Delaware's Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program. Through October 31, 2017 WIC coupons can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at the Market.
