Westover Farmers Market Volunteers
Please select the time slot/slots you'd like to volunteer at the market, Sundays December through April. There will be no markets on December 30 and April 21 (Easter). Once the needed number of volunteers has signed up for a time slot, the slot will be closed. Thanks for your support of the Westover Farmers Market. See you Sunday!
Please note that for the Winter Market, the opening and closing volunteer shifts are 1.5 hours, the mid-market shift is 2 hours. Do not sign up for the trailer or market manager slots.
Here is a brief description of the tasks:
Set-up (from 8:30 to 10:00 am) requires setting up the market booth, signs, trash cans, etc. and guiding and helping vendors if they need it. Occasionally covering for them so that they can grab a coffee or visit the restroom before or during the market. Also, manning the WFM tent and answering questions
Market Booth (from 10:00 to 12:00 pm) making sure the market activities are flowing well; manning the WFM tent and other activities as the market evolves; answering questions; notifying customers with dogs in the market that dogs (except service dogs) are not permitted there due to federal health regulations and liability risks; keeping the market tidy (i.e., when a glass bottle or egg breaks on the sidewalk, both of which have happened)
Closing (12:00 pm - 1:30 pm) - Breaking down the WFM tent; clean up and removal of signs; packing up the trailer; helping vendors with their break down if needed. Monitoring traffic as the vendors leave.
The market manager will provide additional guidance at the market.
Thanks for signing up!
