Volunteering at your local Farmers’ Market
Do you love fresh, local food and cooking things from scratch? Do you want to get to know the farmers who grow your food and have a voice in how your local farmers’ market is run? If so, then we need YOU! Our Market is looking for people who are passionate aboutlocal food and community building, love working with people, and aren’t afraid to pitch in when help is needed.
The downtown Palo Alto Farmers’ Market is a completely volunteer operated and run market, with a working Board dedicated to bringing local farmers and the community together. The Board is comprised of individuals with various backgrounds in all stages of life, who share a passion for good food and our community.
The Palo Alto Farmers’ Market operates every Saturday from 8am-12pm from mid-May to mid-December.
We are currently looking for a few more volunteer Board Members for the 2017 season.
Board responsibilities include: attending monthly board meetings (second Tuesday evening of each month), volunteering 2-3 Saturday shifts per month (about 3 hours each), and serving on various projects when needed.
While we accept volunteers of many ages, please note that the position at times requires carrying and lifting objects (i.e. tables, chairs, signs, etc). If accepted, we do require that all new Board volunteers commit to a minimum of one year or one full season.
