Time to make strawberry shortcake, strawberry pie, strawberry smoothies, and all things strawberry from fresh, local berries found at the Historic Lewes Farmers this Saturday, May 14. The Historic Lewes Farmers Market opens at 8 am at George H.P. Smith Park (Johnson and DuPont Avenues) with vendors bringing juicy strawberries, freshly cut asparagus, lettuces and greens including beautiful varieties of romaine, baby kale, Bok Choi, arugula, Swiss chard, salad and stir fry mixes, starter plants including heirloom tomatoes, herbs, fig trees, and various veggies. Customers will also find a great selection of eggs, milk, butter, beef, grass-fed pork, chicken, live crabs or hand-picked crabmeat, oysters, mushrooms, honey, jams, breads, pastries, cut-flower bouquets, and more.
When it rains the market moves to the Lewes Elementary School parking lot, 820 Savannah Road.
At 10 am, Danio Somoza, Executive Chef and owner of Harvest Tide Steakhouse in Lewes will prepare a delicious menu using fresh food from the market. Danio has created his menus with the focus on providing an elevated dining experience for every guest. The menus specialize in freshly sourced seafood, local produce and the finest hand selected USDA prime beef which is then aged to tender perfection for 21 days in the humidity-controlled meat locker.
A number of the market vendors take pre-orders. The HLFM website www.historiclewesfarmersmarket.org lists all vendors, their contact information, and whether or not they take pre-orders. For pre-orders, the customer may pick up at the vendor tent in the market.
The market’s weekly newsletter lists demos and more. To receive the newsletter customers should go to [email protected] and ask to be added to the list.
The market processes SNAP, WIC, and SFMNP, and continues to match SNAP up to $20 per market, per customer. Please go to the SNAP tent to process SNAP/EBT.
The HLFM continues its Food Pantry Purchase Program. HLFM customers who want to help feed the local community may purchase local produce, meats, milk, and other food from growers at the Market to donate to this program every Saturday. At the end of the Market, the produce and other foods are gathered and given to various food pantries including both Epworth and Casa San Francisco. The HLFM thanks its customers for their generosity.
The circle in front of the Fred Thomas Building at the foot of Dupont will be open for handicap drop-off and pick-up. Beebe Hospital is generously allowing market customers to park in its outside parking lots. Please go to www.historiclewesfarmersmarket.org to see where parking is located and to view Vendor Maps for the market.
The Market thanks The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group, 2022 HLFM Market Champion, for their continued support of the Market.
