Celebrate Father’s Day at the Historic Lewes Farmers Market
George H. P. Smith Park, Johnson and Dupont Avenue
June 16, 2018, 8 am - noon
On Saturday, June 16, at 10 am, we are celebrating Father’s Day with a grilling demo by Executive Chef/Owner Lion Gardner from the Blue Moon Restaurant located in Rehoboth Beach. Chef Gardner will be grilling meats and vegetables.
The Market opens at 8 am at George H. P. Smith Park with 34 vendors bringing green beans, summer squash, kale, Asian greens, lettuces, carrots, eggs, cheese, yogurt, milk, grass-fed pork, beef, and lamb, fresh oysters, the first tomatoes of the summer, 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 HLFM Wednesday Outdoor Market at Crooked Hammock Brewery is also open every Wednesday from 8 to 11 am with an expanded number of vendors. The Market is located at Crooked Hammock Way and Kings Highway in Lewes.
At 9 am, Jennifer Noonan, the Children’s Librarian at the Lewes Public Library will read Big Yellow Sunflower by Frances Berry. 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 is also accepted at both the Saturday and Wednesday markets.
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.
