Do you care about local food and want to support local farmers? Volunteer on Thursdays at the New Harvest Farmers' Market at New Harvest Park and help connect farmers' with the community.

Choose from the following shifts:
2:15-6:15 pm
2:30-4:30 pm When you arrive you can check-in at the information booth and sign-in on the volunteer sheet. You will receive a lanyard to wear. Volunteering will consist of some light manual labor (setting up and taking down the tent and booth), helping to enforce COVID regulations, assisting with curbside deliveries, and helping to distribute Nourish Kids at Home kits.
New Harvest is a small market but incredibly sweet and important to the people that shop at it! It's one of my favorites to work. Things to Note:

  • Bring a mask (we can always provide a mask if you don't have one).
  • Please refrain from eating or drinking within the market footprint. You can exit the market limits to have a snack!
  • A portable bathroom is provided for staff/vendor/ volunteer use. You should get a break at some point during the market to shop or snack.
