Help the Historic Lewes Farmers Market purchase Fresh Local Food from Local Family Farms to give to Delaware Families in Need. Small family farms need help and so do the families who use food banks. The HLFM’s unique program supports both by buying food from local family farms and delivering that local food to area food banks. The HLFM will make sure that there is a balance of fresh veggies, fruit, milk, eggs, and bread to be delivered direct to the food banks from the farmers.
