On Saturday, May 25 at 9 am, the Historic Lewes Farmers Market will celebrate Memorial Day at the Market with flags, demos, and great produce, meats, eggs, mushrooms, oysters, jams, baked goods, and freshly prepared food made from local products to go. So, let the grilling begin!
At 10am, a Meet the Farmer Demonstration. Zach Dittmar of Dittmar Family Farms and Maikalya Riha of Baywater Farms. Zach will discuss their farm’s focus on regenerative farming practices in raising their chickens and over 70 varieties of unique vegetables, herbs and cut flowers. Maikalya will talk about how Baywater Farms is a sixth generation family farm that has developed a hydroponic growing system to allow them to grow fresh clean produce all year long. Baywater focuses on non-gmo and heirloom produce such as Heirloom Tomatoes and Cherry Heirloom tomatoes in the field as well as non-gmo leafy greens in our green houses.
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 3.
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.
In case of inclement weather the Market moves to Shields Elementary School Parking lot.
