Vendors will bring lettuces, arugula, strawberries, fresh-cut asparagus, baby kale, bok choy, Swiss chard, salad and stir-fry mixes, radishes, turnips, spring onions, starter plants including heirloom tomatoes, herbs including various basils and lavender, and flowers including zinnias and marigolds.

A number of the market vendors take preorders. The market website historiclewesfarmersmarket.org lists all vendors, their contact information, and whether or not they take preorders. Customers who preorder may pick up their items at the vendor tent in the market.
The market’s weekly newsletter lists demos and more. Email [email protected] with a request to be added to the list.
The market processes SNAP, WIC and SFMNP, and continues to match SNAP up to $20 per market, per customer. Customers may go to the SNAP tent to process SNAP/EBT.
The HLFM continues its food pantry purchase program. Market customers who want to help feed the local community may purchase local produce, meats, milk and other food from growers at the market to donate to this program every Saturday. At the end of the market, the produce and other foods are gathered and given to various food pantries including Epworth church and Casa San Francisco. The market team thanks customers for their generosity.
The circle in front of the Fred Thomas Building at the foot of Dupont Avenue will be open for handicap drop-off and pickup. Beebe Hospital is generously allowing market customers to park in its outside parking lots; go to historiclewesfarmersmarket.org to see parking and vendor information and maps.
