To create an engaging and vibrant marketplace, we continue to offer special events and activities focusing on local food throughout the season. Running events, such as weekly tastings and children’s arts and crafts, would not be possible without the help of our great volunteers, community partners and entertainers.
If you love fresh air, engaging the public or just want to get involved in your community and the local food movement, check out our volunteer opportunities, busker and community booth applications.
Special Events Volunteers
Special events can include children’s activities, arts & crafts, contests, cooking demonstrations, chef competitions and tastings. This is a great opportunity for those who enjoy talking with the public, especially about food or enjoy leading an arts and crafts table for children.
Skills Required: Knowledge of local agriculture, a love of food and cooking, ability to improvise and adapt, good public relations
Commitment: Minimum availability for a three hour shift during special events; 2-3 major events per season.
Musicians & Buskers
The market is a vibrant place to spend the afternoon with great food against the backdrop of musicians and entertainers. We provide space for local artists to perform music acoustically, as well as a booth for face painters, balloon artists and other children’s entertainers. If you would like to perform at the market, please contact us.
Our community booth is available for local non-profit organizations who would like to provide information to the public about their work. The market provides a tent, table and chairs; you bring the rest. Please note that organizations are not permitted to sell memberships or products from the community booth, but selling raffle tickets for a prize or other contests may be approved.
