Hi there!

Volunteer with us at the Freedom Farmers' Market. The marketplace is open on 2nd Saturdays 9 am - 2 pm, in Oakland. The Freedom Farmers' Market is a small marketplace on the side of the road for underserved farmers to sell culturally relevant non-GMO, organic produce and healthy food to local communities.

If you only have a few hours, you could help set up in the morning (7:30am- 11:30am) or break down (11:30 - 3:00pm) at the end of the day. We even need folks at the information booth, vendor assistance, hand out fliers and hang up posters. Are you a graphic artist or into web design we need you too! Do you love to write, we would love for you write a press release or social media content? Come out to take pictures and post them online.

Last of all if you want to have a farm day experience, you can help us harvest the food.

We will take any Saturday, and if you have any days during the week that would be awesome too!

Okay, I hope to hear from you!
