Chef Mark Schaeffer features Dittmar Family Farms Chicken at 10 am Demo
Historic Lewes Farmers Market at George H.P. Smith Park
(corner of Johnson & Dupont Aves.)
September 14, 2019, 8 am – noon
It’s a great time of the year at the market as there’s still summer’s produce—melons, plums, sweet and hot peppers, heirloom tomatoes—and the beginning of great fall produce in the market. You’ll find plums, figs, broccoli, cabbage, cantaloupe, lettuces, green beans, fresh turmeric and ginger, edamame (so fresh and easy to prepare!), and more. There’s grass-fed beef, lamb and pork, chicken, plus eggs, milk, yogurt, cheeses, jams, honey, soaps, pastries, apple-cider donuts, cut-flowers and herbs.
At 10 am, Chef Mark Schaeffer, from Dewey Beach Country Club prepares an amazing meal using chicken from Dittmar Family Farms. Dittmar grows pasture-raised chicken (no hormones or antibiotics). Dittmar sell all cuts- whole, half, boneless and bone in breast, wings, drumstick/thighs, livers and soup bones. This is delicious chicken and not to be missed.
Parking for the market is at Shields and Lewes School parking lots, just off the corner of Savannah Road and Sussex Drive.
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 and SFMNP coupons are also accepted at the Market.
The Market is open every Saturday from 8 am to noon. Customers are urged to park at the Lewes and Shields School parking lots, just off the corner of Savannah Road and Sussex Drive —a short walk from the Market. This is the best place to park to go to the Market. The Market provides a Veggie Valet service to help customers carry bags and melons back to their cars. This service is located at the HLFM Information Tent.
In case of inclement weather, the Market moves to Shields Elementary School Parking lot.
