The Historic Lewes Farmers Market opens at 8am at George H.P. Smith Park (Johnson and DuPont Avenues) with vendors bringing spring onions, radishes, carrots, salad turnips, lettuces, baby kale, Bok Choy, arugula, Swiss chard, salad and stir fry mixes. Customers will also find juicy strawberries, freshly cut asparagus, and starter plants including heirloom tomatoes, herbs, and various veggies. There’s also a great selection of eggs, milk, butter, yogurt, grass-fed pork, chicken, beef, live crabs or hand-picked crabmeat, oysters, mushrooms, cold-pressed juices, honey, jams, breads, pastries, coffee, cut-flower bouquets, and more.

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 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 circle in front of the Fred Thomas Building at the foot of Dupont will be open for accessible drop-off and pick-up. Beebe Hospital is generously allowing market customers to park in its outside parking lot. The Market moves to the Lewes Elementary School parking lot at 820 Savannah Road if it rains. 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, 2023 HLFM Market Champion, for their continued support of the Market.
