The Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) is a non-profit, community-based, producer-only, farmers market. Started in the summer of 2006 by a group of volunteers, the market has expanded to 30 plus vendors. A community-based, producer-only farmers market is not just another retail enterprise. It is part of a growing environmental movement pioneering ways to save the land, provide small farmers and small producers a way to stay in business, and to educate our children about the food that we eat. In addition to fresh produce, eggs, fruits, breads, baked goods, meats, fish, cut-flowers and herbs, the HLFM features workshops by local chefs (using food from the market), master gardeners, wellness providers, and sustainable agriculture experts. Best of all, the market is a place where every Saturday and Wednesday mornings we meet our neighbors and make new friends, making our community much stronger. People worldwide are rediscovering the benefits of buying local food. It is fresher than anything in the supermarket, and that means that it tastes great and is more nutritious. It is also good for our local economy buying directly from family farmers and producers helps them keep their land.
