LEWES - On Saturday, the Historic Lewes Farmers Market will open at The Lewes Historical Society Complex, 110 Shipcarpenter St. at the corner of West 3rd and Shipcarpenter Streets in Lewes.
The Market will be open from 8 a.m. until noon.
At 10 a.m., Ted Deptula will demonstrate gourmet canapés in the kitchen at the Lewes Historical Society.
Mr. Deptula has worked at Nage in Rehoboth Beach since November 2007. He embraces true artistry in the kitchen, having been promoted to command this renowned Rehoboth Beach epicurean kitchen.
A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, he was formerly with the prestigious Hotel DuPont in Wilmington.
Summer is in full swing as the beach communities celebrate sun, sand, and fresh vegetables!
Earlier this month, the market welcomed the first peaches, corn and tomatoes of the year - nothing says summer more or more deliciously.
The market's wide variety of vendors offer fabulous produce, meat, chicken, lamb, dairy products, and a vast array of other agricultural offerings.
Specific types and varieties of fresh meat, vegetables, flowers, cheeses, eggs, breads and plants are listed by vendor in their newsletter which is sent to their customers on Thursdays. If you would like to be included, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
The Children's Reading Program continues at 9 a.m. in the School House.
Maureen Miller, Children's Librarian from The Lewes Public Library, will read "Muncha, Muncha, Muncha" by Candace Fleming.
For the safety of patrons and vendors, the Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) has adopted a new policy that pets (with the exception of service animals) are not permitted at its farmers market.
The June 2 market was the first time this policy was in effect, and many patrons (including many dog owners) expressed their support for the policy.
