The Historic Lewes Farmers Market won the first place title in the America’s Favorite Farmers Market Contest in the medium category. Last year we won second place and were determined to place first in 2011. This is the first time a Delaware market has won first place. The national contest is sponsored by American Farmland Trust, the nation’s leading conservation organization dedicated to saving America’s farm and ranch land, promoting environmentally sound farming practices and supporting a sustainable future for farms. The HLFM is dedicated to the mission of promoting and supporting sustainable agriculture in the Delmarva through its 37-vendor, producer-only market, educational programs, scholarships and donations, and community involvement. The HLFM is proud to be first in its category, and encourages support of all local farmers markets throughout the country.
