The Market asks customers to purchase food from farmers at the market on Saturdays to help supply the Epworth United Methodist Church Food Pantry. It’s simple–customers may purchase what they want to donate or give a few dollars to the farmer and ask them to choose what to donate. At the end of the Market, the produce and other foods are gathered and given to Epworth. The HLFM thanks its customers for their generosity.
The HLFM’s Wednesday market at Crooked Hammock Brewery is now open from 8 to 11 am with 11 farmers/producers: 302 Aquaponics, Baywater Farms, Bennett Orchards, Bodine Farms, Dittmar Family Farms, Hattie’s Garden, Jackie Blues, Kalmar Farm, Mandala Pies, Stag Run Farm, and Totem Farms.
