Due to the weather forecast, the Saturday, Aug. 4 Historic Lewes Farmers Market (open rain or shine, 8 a.m. to noon) will move to Shields Elementary School parking lot at Savannah Road and Sussex Drive. Unfortunately, this means the tomato festival activities have been canceled. More than 30 vendors will still be at the market on Saturday with the best local produce on Delmarva, including lots of heirloom and cherry tomatoes.
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 market's SNAP tent to pick up the bonus $20 in tokens to use at the market.
The Historic Lewes Farmers Market also welcomes participants in Delaware's Women, Infants and Children program. WIC coupons can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at the market. Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons are also welcome.
There's also a market at Crooked Hammock Brewery from 8 to 11 a.m., Wednesdays, at Crooked Hammock Way and Kings Highway.
