Please select the time slot you'd like to volunteer at the market, Saturdays May 23 through November 21. Once the needed number of volunteers has signed up for that time slot, the slot will be closed. Thanks for your support of the Marymount Farmers Market. See you Saturday!
This is an outdoor activity. Check in advance to find out what the weather will be when you are in market. Bring any clothes (e.g., rain gear) that you may need. Weather protection is far more important than style! Plenty of healthy and delicious food is available in market for you to enjoy. Thanks for your support of the Westover Farmers Market. See you Saturday!
Please note that shifts are 2 hours.
Here is a brief description of the tasks:
Set-up (from 8:00 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 booth 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 the County's and federal health regulations; 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 - 2:00 pm) - Breaking down the MFM tent; clean up and removing of signs; packing up the trailer; helping vendors with their break down if needed.
The market manager will provide additional guidance at the market.
Thanks for signing up!
