“Indulge in a spooky culinary experience at the Historic Lewes Farmers Market this Halloween, where the freshest local produce transforms into mouthwatering treats that will haunt your taste buds!”
The Historic Lewes Farmers Market is getting into the Halloween spirit this weekend. On Saturday, Oct. 28, from 9 a.m. to noon, farmers and volunteers will be dressed up in ghoulish costumes at the Lewes Elementary School parking lot. And customers are encouraged to join in on the fun by coming in their own costumes.
There will be prizes given to vendors for the best costumes and best decorated tent, as well as prizes for customers with the best costume. Kids can also look forward to Halloween stickers and party favors.
But the Halloween festivities aren’t the only reason to visit the Fall Market. Customers can expect to find a wide variety of fresh local produce, including broccoli, baby kale, cauliflower, butternut squash, and more. The farmers will also have potatoes, brussels sprouts, winter squashes, sweet potatoes, and a range of other products like eggs, meats, soups, breads, jams, pastries, and flowers.
Parking may be limited, so it’s recommended that customers walk or bike to the market if possible. For those who need to drive, there is parking available in the school bus parking lot, as well as on Savannah Road and Sussex Drive.
The Historic Lewes Farmers Market will also be celebrating its customers on Nov. 4 for Customer Appreciation Day, with free goodies throughout the market. Additionally, the market will be holding its annual food pantry collection drive at the final two markets of the season, on Nov. 11 and 18.
For more information about the market, including a list of vendors and their contact information, customers can visit the HLFM website. The website also allows customers to sign up for the market’s weekly newsletter, which provides updates on demos, what each farmer is bringing to the market, upcoming events, and more.
The market accepts SNAP, WIC, and SFMNP benefits and matches SNAP up to $20 per market, per customer. Customers can process their SNAP/EBT at the SNAP tent. It’s important to note that WIC and SFMNP benefits expire at the end of the month on Oct. 31.
Lastly, the HLFM continues its Food Pantry Purchase Program, where customers can purchase local produce, meats, milk, and other food from growers at the market to donate to food pantries. The produce and other foods are collected at the end of the market and given to food pantries like Epworth and Casa San Francisco.
So come out to the Historic Lewes Farmers Market this Saturday for a spooktacular Halloween experience and to support local farmers and businesses. For more information, visit www.HistoricLewesFarmersMarket.org.
