Please select the time slot you'd like to volunteer at the market, Saturdays, September 5, through November 21. Please note that the first three slots for each market day are for the market manager working that day and for those responsible for bringing and removing the trailer. Once a volunteer has signed up for a time slot, the slot will be closed, although several time periods have multiple slots.
