The Historic Lewes Farmer Market, set for 8 a.m. to noon Sept. 14 at George H.P. Smith Park, at Dupont and Johnson avenues in downtown Lewes, will still have summer produce — melons, plums, sweet and hot peppers, heirloom tomatoes — and the beginning of fall produce in the market.
Fall produce includes plums, figs, broccoli, cabbage, cantaloupe, lettuce, green beans, fresh turmeric and ginger and edamame will be available, along with grass-fed beef, lamb and pork, chicken, plus eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese, jams, honey, soaps, pastries, apple-cider donuts, cut flowers and herbs.
Executive Chef Mark Schaeffer, from Dewey Beach Country Club, will prepare a meal using chicken from Dittmar Family Farms, at 10 a.m. in the demo tent. Dittmar grows pasture-raised chicken, with no hormones or antibiotics, and sells all cuts: whole, half, boneless and bone-in breast, wings, drumstick/thighs, livers and soup bones.
The market offers food stamps at the market. 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 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.
