Rehoboth Beach Farmers' Market

Delaware's community-run farmers' markets are growing and thriving. You can purchase items from state-wide vendors all in one place. Rehoboth Beach is no exception when it comes to finding fresh offerings from local farmers and vendors. Simply stated on their website, the Rehoboth Beach Farmers' Market is “real food, real farmers, real community.” 

Regular vendors offer an impressive array of fruits, veggies, meats, cheeses, seafood, flowers, coffee, ice cream, and prepared foods. Every week the Farmers' Market features a different guest vendor and holds special events including cooking or flower arranging demonstrations, and live music from local musicians. 

“Under the Green Tent” patrons will find on-the-spot education and resources for preserving the environment and reducing our carbon footprint. And as a bonus, shoppers get a free veggie container to use during their market shopping experience. 

There is still plenty of time to get late summer produce such as tomatoes, green beans and lima beans. Early fall produce, including pumpkins, apples, plums, leafy green kale and radishes, have arrived. Not only are these items tasty, but for the artistically inclined, they can be the inspiration for a beautiful and colorful painting. 

The Rehoboth Beach Farmers' Market is located at Grove Park in Rehoboth Beach and is open Tuesdays from noon to 4pm. During the month of October, hours change to noon to 3pm. Mark your calendar now for a special holiday market to be held on Saturday, Nov. 29 from noon to 3pm.

Rehoboth Beach Walk to Defeat ALS

Thanks to all the recent ALS ice bucket challenges taking over your Facebook news feed, by now you should be very well aware of this terrible disease. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. It leads to the loss of control of muscle movement, total paralysis and death within two to five years of diagnosis.

If you aren’t too keen to dump a bucket of freezing cold ice water on your head, fear not, you can still support the cause in a less hypothermic way. Just lace up your kicks and participate in the 7th Annual Rehoboth Beach Walk to Defeat ALS® this Saturday, September 13. The walk is an easy two miles on the boardwalk and begins at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand at 9:30 a.m. Registration is at 8 a.m.

Walkers of all ages and fitness levels are welcome and both individuals and teams are encouraged to participate. While there is no fee to take part in the event, there is a suggested contribution of $25. Money raised goes to patient services, research, and advocacy and awareness. Volunteer opportunities are also available. Check out the website for more information, to register, or to make a donation.

Take the Chicken Plunge!

Chicken Plunge

Most of you are familiar with Rehoboth Beach’s annual Polar Plunge - a winter event that involves jumping into the freezing ocean for a good cause. But for those who are too ‘chicken’ to launch into icy water, there is an alternative. 

The Chicken Plunge is a family-friendly activity for those who prefer to dip in when the ocean temperature is comfortable. Participants can either jump in the ocean or a baby pool. Community teams are encouraged to participate. 

The event, which benefits the Rehoboth Beach Patrol (RBP) and the Village Improvement Association (VIA), takes place this Saturday, September 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the VIA Clubhouse on Grenoble Place at the north end of the boardwalk near the Henlopen Hotel. Plunge time is at 1 p.m. The cost is $10 per adult and $5 per child (accompanied by a participation adult). 

RBP lifeguards will be on hand to help out as well as the Rehoboth Beach Fire Department - complete with fire truck! There will be a costume contest in addition to food, fun, games and prizes! 

As a result of last year’s event the RBP was able to purchase new defibrillation equipment. The event also benefits VIA’s outreach to local charities and scholarship funds. VIA promotes the interests, improvements and progress of Rehoboth Beach as well as perform charitable and civic work. 

The rain date for this event is Sunday, September 7.
