HLFM’s Wednesday Market at Crooked Hammock Brewery is open from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., with 10 farmers / producers: 302 Aquaponics, Baywater Farms, Bodine Farms, Dittmar Family Farms, Hattie’s Garden, Jackie Blues, Kalmar Farm, Mandala Pies, Stag Run Farm and totem farms. The Wednesday market runs until September 29.
The market is continuing its SNAP (EBT / food stamps) program. To help reduce economic barriers to local, healthy eating, the HLFM matches up to $ 20 each participant each week with HLFM Bonus Bucks. SNAP participants are encouraged to come to the SNAP tent to collect the bonus of $ 20 in tokens to use at the market. WIC and SFMNP coupons are also accepted at the market.
The HLFM is also continuing its partnership with Epworth United Methodist Church Food Pantry. Market patrons who wish to help feed the local community can purchase local produce, meat, milk and other foods from market producers to donate to the Epworth program every Saturday. At the end of the market, produce and other food is collected and delivered to Epworth.
Parking is limited at the market, as the Lewes School parking lot is still fenced due to construction. Customers are advised to get to the market on foot or by bicycle. There are a few places accessible to people with disabilities in the circle of the Fred Thomas building. Beebe Healthcare also allows customers to park on the Beebe outdoor lot at the back of the hospital as well. Customers can enter this parking area through the main hospital entrance between Rite Aid and the hospital. The park has an entrance from the Beebe lot. It is closer to the market if the customers go right on the park path after entering.
In inclement weather, the market moves to the parking lot of Shields Elementary School (Savannah Road and Sussex Drive).
