About

Want to give back to your community while volunteering in a fun, outdoor setting?

Want to meet other like-minded folks who care about their community and also want to keep it vibrant?

Like the idea of taking home a basket of organic strawberries or a bunch of greens as a token of our appreciation for your hard work?

Help staff our community market with a two-hour shift between 2pm and 9pm on Thursday evenings!

Pick a 2-hour (or longer) shift and make a difference in your community! Responsibilities include:

  • Greeting patrons as they enter the market
  • Educating community members about the market & answering questions
  • Coordinating youth and nutrition activities
  • Facilitating CalFresh (food stamp) transactions
  • Set up
  • Clean up
  • Dog watching
  • Translating (Spanish/English)
  • And more!!

MCM is a largely volunteer-driven, independent market and we will tailor volunteer responsibilities to your interests. If you've got the drive, we'll find a way to help you give back to your community.

Benefits include:

  • Getting connected to farms, local food producers, and other like-minded
  • Participate in farm trips, volunteer gatherings, and appreciation events
  • Become a part of our pool of volunteers, an eclectic bunch of folks who can give you insider tips or help you network to find a new roommate or job!
  • Make friends or find love at the farmer's market! No joke - we have had a few great relationships bud out of our volunteer pool!
  • Get a free coffee or a snack during your shift (don't be afraid to ask if you're hungry or thirsty) and take home some free or discounted produce when we have it available!
