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.
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 asks that dogs not be allowed to interact with other dogs in order to keep the Market safe.
Parking is limited, so please walk or bike to the Market if you are able. For those who must drive to the Market, one of the closest places to park is the Lewes Elementary School parking lot. Park in the lot with access from Savannah Rd, and there is an opening to the park by the pole barn. There is a slight slope after the opening leading to the Market which is very close. Thanks to Beebe Hospital, there is also parking at their rear outdoor parking lot right next to an entrance to the park.
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 market, 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!
