Chef Paul Gallo from Bramble & Brine at The Buttery Demo
This Saturday at 10 am, Chef Paul Gallo from Bramble & Brine at The Buttery uses farm-fresh produce from the Market to create an amazing meal.
Thirty-two farmers/producers will bring summer squashes, kale, strawberries, Bok Choy, sugar snap peas, snow peas, broccoli, radishes, carrots, Swiss chard, spinach, arugula, fresh-cut asparagus, lettuces, ground lamb and pork sausages, steaks, burger patties, baby back ribs, tilapia fish, oysters, live crabs or hand-picked crabmeat, grass-fed chicken, beef and pork, honey, mushrooms, kombucha, eggs, yogurt, milk, butter, ice cream, jams, fresh-baked breads, pastries made with fruit from the vendors at the market, herb, veggie, and flower plants, cut-flower bouquets including sunflowers, and more. The Historic Lewes Farmers Market is unique in that it is producer-only—customers are able to buy directly from the farmer who grew the produce. Only vendors who grow, raise, or produce what they sell are allowed in this market. A true farmers market!
Children’s Storytime at the Market, a partnership with the Lewes Public Library, is back after a two-year hiatus. Library volunteers read books about farming, gardening, healthy eating, and nature at the Yellow Tent near the Historic Lewes Farmers Market Information Tent begins at 10am.
The HLFM Big Raffle returns with 3 stupendous prizes, each valued at $1,000: Jazz Fest Weekend Tickets and Dinner; the Fabu-Lewes-Feast including 8-$125 restaurant gift cards; and a Private-in-Home 3-Course Chef with Wine Pairing for 10 by Chef Sean Corea. Tickets are on sale at the Market, and the drawing is September 3rd. Winner does not have to be present to win.
The market takes place at George H.P. Smith Park. However, in case of inclement weather, the Market moves to Lewes Elementary School Parking lot, 820 Savannah Road. When the market moves to the Lewes Elementary School parking lot, customers who walk, bike, or ride the new Lewes Line can enter at the driveway to the school next to the Bethel Methodist Cemetery.
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 market 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 will also be accepted at the market starting in June.
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 the HLFM Food Pantry Purchase Program every Saturday. At the end of the Market, the produce and other foods are gathered and given to various food pantries including 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 is a stop on the new Lewes Line, a great way to come to the Market.
The Wednesday Market at Crooked Hammock Brewery is now open with ten great farmers from 8 to 11 am, June through September.
The Market thanks The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group, 2022 HLFM Market Champion, for their continued support of the Market.
