We will be at the Lewes Elementary School parking lot, 820 Savannah Rd., Lewes this Saturday August 26 with a great demo. At 10 am the HLFM celebrates apples featuring Dru Tevis, Corporate Pastry Chef at SoDel Concepts, and Lenore Brady of Stag Run Farm. Lenore will talk apples—varieties, history, and much more. Dru will feature a recipe for caramel apple doughnut focaccia. He will discuss the versatility of donuts and donut dough as the base for a number of deserts, as featured in this apple-donut recipe. As usual, there will be samples as Dru demonstrates how to make a simple doughnut and apple into a dinner party plated dessert. Not to be missed!

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. This Market is where the farmers are—the most farmers in any farmers market in the Delmarva.

Only two more Saturdays left to enter the HLFM Big Raffle. There are 3 stupendous prizes: a $1,400 gift certificate to Seagreen Bicycle; the Fabu-Lewes Feast including 12--$100 restaurant gift cards; and a Private-in-Home 3-Course Chef’s Tasting with Wine Pairing for 10 by Chef Sean Corea from Lewes Oyster House. Tickets are on sale at the Market, and the drawing is September 2nd. Customers do not have to be present to win.

Visit the bigger and even better HLFM Wednesday Market at Crooked Hammock Brewery for the last two Markets of the season, running through September 6th. This easy in-and-out Market is open from 8 to 11:30 am and has fourteen vendors: Beachdog Farm, Bennett Orchards, Cosmic Dog Farm, Davidson’s Exotic Mushrooms, Dittmar Family Farms, Gaia Coffee Co, Hattie’s Garden, Kalmar Farm, Lucky Penny Flower Farm, Mahon River Farm, Marsh Creek Cattle and Company, Stag Run Farm, Tout de Suite Patisserie, and Two Sweet Beaches Bakery. Thanks to Crooked Hammock Brewery for sponsoring the Wednesday Market.

The popular Children’s Storytime at the Market, a partnership with the Lewes Public Library, starts at 10am under the yellow tent. Library volunteers read books about farming, gardening, and healthy eating. All children and their adults are welcome. Thanks to Heirloom Restaurant for sponsoring this program.

Dogs at the Market must be under control on a tightly held, non-retractable leash inside the Market to ensure the safety of all customers at the Market.

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. Customers can sign up to receive the Market’s weekly newsletter on the HLFM website. The Market’s newsletters list demos, what each farmer/ producer is bringing to each Saturday and Wednesday markets, upcoming events, and more. Customers may also email [email protected] and ask to be added to the list.

The Market accepts SNAP, WIC, and SFMNP benefits 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 food pantries including Epworth and Casa San Francisco. The HLFM thanks its customers for their generosity.

The Market thanks The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group, 2023 HLFM Market Champion, for their continued support of the Market. It also thanks all the 2023 Sponsors!
