Farmers Market Program Volunteers are in charge of the daily tasks that come with running the Paul's Place Farmers Market in Carroll Park. These volunteers are needed to help set up the Market tents, tables, chairs, and decorations, as well as help vendors with setting up as needed. When they are not needed at the market itself, they will be responsible for passing out fliers about the Market at nearby (walk-able) neighborhood locations. They will help with greeting guests, answering questions, and troubleshooting any Market problems that arise. They may conduct surveys with guests to help understand needs of the community and healthy food access patterns. They will learn the ins and outs of Market programs, such as SNAP/EBT acceptance, the CSA program, and more. They will be in charge of helping to assemble and distribute CSA shares each week to guests who participate in the program. They will also help with breakdown of the Market, including tents, tables, and chairs, and returning items to the storage facility. Thse volunteers are needed every Thursday during one of two shifts.
Logistics: The Market needs at least 4 Program Volunteers for every Thursday of the Market ( June 1st - October 5th). The first shift will occur from 1 pm - 4 pm. The second shift will be from 4 pm - 7:30 pm. Volunteers can change week to week, but consistency is preferable.
