You may know that the St. John’s Farmers’ Market is primarily a volunteer-run organization. Although we do hire a temporary, full-time Market Manager for eight months of the year, and a Market Assistant for each market day, most of the work done at or for our market is done by volunteers. Volunteers serve on our Board of Directors, others on committees and some at the market itself.
Many of our market day volunteers come from the university, primarily through the International Student Office. University students are busy with exams in August, September and December and for us this means that unfortunately we don’t have as many awesome volunteers to rely on as we do for most of the market season.
We are seeking volunteers to help each market day for at least the month of August. Please take a glance through at the following volunteer duties and please consider volunteering some of your time with us.
As a volunteer, you can help with the following:
7:15 – 9 am
9 am – Noon
Noon – 3 pm
Our market is valued and appreciated by the community – we hope you appreciate it too. Please consider volunteering a few hours of your time this August to help us continue to offer the quality market experience that our customers and vendors have fallen in love with.
Contact our 2013 Market Manager, Margaret Graves, with any questions about volunteering at the market by calling 240-2451 or by email.
