Historic Lewes Farmers Market @ Crooked Hammock Opens
Located by the Crooked Hammock Brewery on King’s Highway near Dartmouth Drive and Rt. 1, the Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) Wednesday Market, runs every week from 8 to 11.
HLFM Wednesdays This easy-to-access market operates throughout the “high-season” until early September, and will supplement the busy Saturday market. For those of you who need extra items mid-week, or who enjoy the convenience of a different location on a day when you don’t have to fight the traffic or scrounge for parking, the Crooked Hammock Brewery location should fit the bill. Parking is close by and ample. Although a smaller market, the vendors represent a good cross-section of produce and other food items, all locally grown and produced. You should find all the supplies you need for healthy eating at this mid-week market.
This is the last week for our full selection of tomato plants! Our tomato plants are still going strong, but this will probably be the last week you can count on getting a large selection.
We will continue to sell whatever we have for the remainder of June, but it is time to get those eggplants, peppers and basil plants in the ground, if you have not already.
We still have plenty of zinnias, and marigolds for you to plant.
