The Historic Lewes Farmers Market announced plans to open a second producer-only farmers market on Wednesdays at Kings Highway across from Crooked Hammock Brewery Wednesday, July 13.

The market will be open every Wednesday from 8 to 11 a.m„ and will feature vendors with local produce, eggs, meats, fruit, jams and jellies, and freshly baked breads, pastries, quiches, and more. Board President Helaine Harris said, "The HLFM has been looking for a second location to bring its quality vendors to the public mid-week for quite some time.

"The market spot at Crooked Hammock Way and Kings Highway has high visibility and close-by parking.

"We believe that this new added location is perfect for those who need to restock then-kitchens with local fruits and vegetables mid-week."

The market will also offer its SNAP (EBT Food Stamps) program at the Wednesday market. To help lower economic barriers to local, healthy food, the HLFM matches up to $20 for each participant each week with HLFM Bonus Bucks.

The Saturday market with 35 vendors is open from 8 a.m. to noon.

There's parking for that location at the Shields Elementary School and Lewes School parking lots, just off the corner of Savannah Road and Sussex Drive and a short walk to the market. For customers not able to walk that far, there is a drop-off and pick-up entrance in the circle in front of the Fred Thomas Building next to the park.

There are two special programs at the Saturday market July 9. At 9 a.m, Maureen Miller, children's librarian from the Lewes Public Library will read "Tops and Bottoms" by Janet Stevens.

At 10 am, Lion Gardner, from The Blue Moon, will demonstrate a summer recipe using fresh produce from the market.

Gardner worked at several excellent restaurants before joining the crew as executive chef at the iconic Blue Moon in 2006. Two years later, he became an owner. Blue Moon, with influences from Gardner's travels around the world, remains on the culinary cutting edge. This is surely a demo not to be missed.
