The Historic Lewes Farmers Market will open at 8 a.m. Sept. 30 at George H. P. Smith Park, located at Dupont and Johnson avenues in downtown Lewes.

Thirty-five vendors will sell fresh ginger, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplants, tomatoes, pears, apples, sweet corn, lima beans, peppers, pumpkins, cucumbers, beets, radishes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, kale, carrots, squash, beef-pork-lamb, artisanal cheeses, baked goods, local honey, freshly-cut flowers and chicken and duck eggs.

The market provides a veggie valet service to help customers carry bags back to their cars. This service is located outside the HLFM information tent.

At 10 a.m. in the demonstration tent, visitors can meet Gary Papp. Papp and his wife Lorraine are the chef/owners of Palate restaurant in Rehoboth.

The market offers food stamps at the market. 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 food stamps tent at the market to pick up the bonus $20. In addition to food stamps, the Historic Lewes Farmers Market welcomes participants in Delaware's Women, Infants and Children program. WIC coupons can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at the market.

Parking can be found at the Shields Elementary School and Lewes School parking lots at the intersection of Savannah Road and Sussex Drive,
