Food Drive at the Market - November 11 and 18

The Market continues to "glean" (gather together donated food from our vendors) to give to Casa San Francisco's food bank located in Milton, DE, and customers can purchase something fresh from a vendor and bring it to the HLFM table at the market to donate to Casa San Franciso's food bank. The HLFM and its customers want to give the food pantry a little bit extra for the winter. Here are the specific items that the food bank has requested: spaghetti sauce, pasta, peanut butter, jams and jellies, canned fruits/vegetables/soups, boxed cereal, powdered or shelf stable milk, rice, and beans. Please honor the HLFM's mission and the health needs of folk who use the food bank by providing healthy foods. These items may also be brought to the HLFM Table at the Market. 

The Book Table is Back at the Market
The HLFM continues to feature books, gifts, and 2018 calendars at incredible discounts for the holidays. (All sales are a donation to the HLFM.)
