The Historic Lewes Farmers Market begins its fall market hours — 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 5 and through the fall season, and moves to the parking lot of Richard Shields Elementary School, 910 Shields Ave., Lewes, so Smith Park can be reseeded.
The market continues its fall season through Nov. 23 with regular market vendors plus an old favorite, Nancy’s Café, offering carrots, peppers, lettuces, kales, sweet potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, winter squashes including pumpkins, fruits, cider, mushrooms, chicken, pork, oysters, freshly laid eggs, breads, jams and jellies, pastries, milk, yogurt, macaroons, and flowers for the table.
Chef Hari Cameron will make fresh pasta at 10 a.m. in the demo tent. Cameron attended The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College in Philadelphia. In 2012, he opened his first solo restaurant a(MUSE.) in Rehoboth Beach. Three years later, he launched casual, pasta-focused grandpa (MAC). For his progressive, Mid-Atlantic cuisine at a(MUSE.), Cameron earned national attention, including James Beard nominations for "Rising Star Chef" and "Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic."
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.
