The Historic Lewes Farmers Market will be open from 8 a.m. to noon May 11 at George H.P. Smith Park, Johnson and Dupont avenues, with potted plants and flowers for Mother’s Day.
In addition to those flowers and plants, 35 vendors will offer strawberries, asparagus, lettuce and greens including mini-romaine, baby kale, bok choy, arugula, Swiss chard, spinach, salad and stir fry mixes and Tatsoi. Customers will also find a selection of eggs, milk, butter, grass-fed lamb, pork, beef, chicken, mushrooms, honey and herbs.
The HLFM will continue its partnership with the Lewes Public Library. This year, Children’s Story Time will begin at 9 a.m. June 1.
Executive Chef and Owner of Harvest Tide Steakhouse Restaurant Danio Somoza-Angel will hold a demonstration at 10 a.m. Somoza-Angel has training in French, American and Asian cuisines.
The market continues its 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 beginning in June.
Parking can be found at the Shields Elementary School and Lewes School Parking lots. In case of inclement weather, the market moves to Shields Elementary School Parking lot.
