Hello Friends of the Historic Lewes Farmers Market!
Saturday, October 7,
 9 am - 12 pm
Shields Elementary School Parking Lot
(Savannah Road & Sussex Drive)
Fall Location and New Hours
Don't forget to come an hour later (9 am start) to the Fall Market which moves to Shields this Saturday so that we can seed and restore the area we were in at George H.P. Smith Park. 

Also, some vendors do not have the produce for the Fall Market, but most of your favorite vendors will still be with us through the last market day of the season--November 18.  See the Fall vendor list below.

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society shows Tidewater October 17, 7 pm
Concerned about coastal flooding? Well, you're not alone. On October 17 at 7 pm the Rehoboth Beach Film Society is showing a very important film about sunny day flooding (high tide-no storm flooding) in Hampton Roads. This flooding is threatening ordinary citizens, the U.S. Navy, and local businesses. It shows how an innovative whole-of-government problem-solving model is being attempted by local and military leaders to deal with this challenge. Judy Rolfe, the assistant  producer and filmmaker and Lewes local, will introduce the film. Not to be missed!
Location: Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive, #2 Dartmouth Plaza, Lewes (behind Wawa). Admission: $6. Purchase tickets by going to www.rehobothfilm.com or call 302-645-9095 (ext. 1)
