GLVC Demos at this Saturday’s Historic Lewes Farmers Market
On Saturday, June 2, at 8 am, the Historic Lewes Farmers Market will open at George H P. Smith Park with 34 vendors bringing large local strawberries, rhubarb, asparagus, lettuces, arugula, spinach, carrots, eggs, cheese, yogurt, milk, grass-fed pork, beef, and lamb, fresh oysters, and much more.
The Market is open rain or shine, but if it is raining the Market moves to Shields Elementary School Parking Lot (Savannah Road and Sussex Drive).
The Market opens its Wednesday Outdoor Market at Crooked Hammock Brewery on June 6 from 8 to 11am with an expanded number of vendors. The Market is located at Crooked Hammock Way and Kings Highway in Lewes.
At 10 am, the Greater Lewes Community Village will discuss their volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to helping older adults live independently as long as possible. The Village provides volunteer support, services and programs that enhance the lives of members by helping them remain engaged in a variety of social, educational and cultural activities. The GLCV reminds all that their 5th Annual Attic Treasures sale will happen on September 1. Call 302-703-2568 for information on how to donate your gently-used treasures.
At 9 am, Jennifer Noonan, the Children’s Librarian at the Lewes Public Library will read Who Took the Farmer's Hat? by Joan L. Nodset. Just under 8,900 children and their adults have come to Children’s Story Time at the Market since this partnership program between the HLFM and the Lewes Public Library began in 2008.
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 at the Market to pick up the bonus $20 in tokens to use at the Market. WIC will also be accepted at the market beginning June 2.
The Market is open every Saturday from 8 am to noon. Ample parking can be found at the Shields Elementary School and Lewes School Parking lots (intersection of Savannah Road and Sussex Drive), a short walk to the Market. The Market provides a Veggie Valet service to help customers carry bags and melons (when they are in season) back to their cars. This service is located right outside the HLFM Information Tent.
