At 10 am in the Demo Tent, Chef Hari Cameron will work his magic with Market produce at the demo tent. Chef Hari attended The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College in Philadelphia. In 2012, he opened his first solo restaurant a(MUSE.) in Rehoboth Beach. Three years later, he launched casual, pasta-focused grandpa (MAC). For his progressive, Mid-Atlantic cuisine at a(MUSE.), Cameron earned national attention, including James Beard nominations for “Rising Star Chef” and “Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic.”
Parking for the market is at Shields and Lewes School parking lots, just off the corner of Savannah Road and Sussex Drive.
The Market continues its SNAP (EBT Food Stamps) program. To help lower economic barriers to local, healthy food, the HLFM matches up to $20 each participant each week with HLFM Bonus Bucks. SNAP participants are encouraged to come to the SNAP tent at the Market to pick up the bonus $20 in tokens to use at the Market. WIC and SFMNP coupons are also accepted at the Market.
The Market is open every Saturday from 8 am to noon. Customers are urged to park at the Lewes and Shields School parking lots, just off the corner of Savannah Road and Sussex Drive —a short walk from the Market. This is the best place to park to go to the Market. The Market provides a Veggie Valet service to help customers carry bags and melons back to their cars. This service is located at the HLFM Information Tent.
In case of inclement weather, the Market moves to Shields Elementary School Parking lot.
