LEWES, Del. — It’s been a great Market so far this season, and this Saturday, May 15, the fun and good food continues. The Historic Lewes Farmers Market opens at 8 am at George H.P. Smith Park (Johnson and DuPont Avenues) with vendors bringing juicy strawberries, freshly cut asparagus, lettuces and greens including mini-romaines, baby kale, Bok Choi, arugula, Swiss chard, spinach, salad and stir fry mixes, starter plants including heirloom tomatoes, herbs, and various veggies. Customers will also find a great selection of eggs, milk, butter, grass-fed pork, chicken, crabs, oysters, mushrooms, honey, jams, baked goods, and more.
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 will also be accepted at the market starting in June.
The HLFM also continues its partnership with Epworth United Methodist Church Food Pantry. 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 the Epworth program every Saturday. 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.
In case of inclement weather, the Market moves to Shields Elementary School Parking lot.
The Market thanks The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group, 2021 HLFM Market Champion, for their continued support of the Market. They also appreciate everyone for helping keep the Market healthy and safe in 2021!
