Last Market Day of the 2021 Season

This Saturday, November 20, is the last day of the Historic Lewes Farmers Market for the 2021 season. It is also the last Saturday to purchase yams, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, mushrooms, pies, and all the fixins’ for Thanksgiving. The Fall Market is located at the Richard Shields Elementary School parking lot at the corner of Savannah Road and Sussex Drive in Lewes, Delaware, and this last market is open from 9 am til noon. The Market thanks all of its customers, farmers/producers, volunteers, and supporters for their support this year. The Market plans to open the 2022 Market on May 7 at George H.P. Smith Park.

At this Saturday’s market, farmers/producers will be offering the fall harvest—carrots, sweet potatoes, kale, beets, collard greens, lettuces, arugula, broccoli, cabbage, beets, radishes, winter squashes, turnips, apples, apple cider, peppers, freshly laid eggs, oysters in the shell, chicken, beef, fish, oysters, jams and jellies, honey, kombucha, baked goods, and fall wreaths for the door!

For the food drive this Saturday, customers are asked to both bring non-perishable items to the Market, and to also consider purchasing fresh food at the Market to donate to two organizations who feed those in our community who need a little help. The food pantries request certain non-perishables including spaghetti sauce, pasta, peanut butter, jams and jellies, canned fruits/vegetables/soups, boxed cereal, powdered or shelf stable milk, rice, and beans. Please honor the HLFM's mission and the health needs of folk who use the food bank by providing healthy foods.

At the end of market hours, the produce and other foods are delivered to Casa San Francisco and Epworth United Methodist. It’s a challenging time for many, and this is a great way to get nutritious local food to more community members. Market organizers thank customers for their generosity.

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.

Parking is limited at the Market, as the Lewes School parking lot is still fenced off due to construction. Customers are advised to either walk or bike to the market. The Market thanks Beebe Hospital for allowing customers to also park in the outdoor Beebe lot in back of the Hospital. Customers can enter that parking area through the main entrance to the Hospital between Rite Aid and the Hospital.

Customers who want to know what is happening at the Market over the winter and at each Saturday market during the season should subscribe to the HLFM newsletter. 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, vegetables, meat, and more -- a “real” farmers market that is producer-only.
