The Historic Lewes Farmers Market Continues to Celebrate the Best of the Fall Harvest
This Saturday, October 20, 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.
Twenty-four vendors will be at the Market through November 17 (Saturday before Thanksgiving) offering all the bounties of fall harvest: carrots, fresh ginger, sweet potatoes, lettuces, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, winter squashes (including pumpkins), mushrooms, artisanal cheeses, apples, pears, cider, lamb, pork, oysters, freshly laid eggs, breads, jams and jellies, pastries, milk, butter, yogurt and beautiful flowers for the table.
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. In addition to SNAP, the Historic Lewes Farmers Market welcomes participants in Delaware's Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program. WIC coupons can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at the Market. Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) coupons are also welcome.
Customers who want to know what is happening at the Market each Saturday should subscribe to the HLFM newsletter sent to customers on Thursdays. Newsletter is free. To be included, customers may send their email address to [email protected]
Consistent with its mission, the HLFM is committed to supporting farmers who grow local fruits and vegetables -- a “real” farmers market that is producer-only.
