OREGON CITY FARMERS MARKET INC

Our need for volunteers at our farmers market has grown due to the increased number of SNAP recipients that shop at our market. Customers come to the information booth to run their card like a debit transaction. In turn, volunteers give 'tokens' which is our SNAP currency to use for approved items within the market.

We also process traditional debit transactions. We answer questions about vendors and direct customers to where they're located.

Selling merchandise is another job duty as we are releasing a new market t-shirt line and insulated shopping bags.

We operate a Power of Produce children's nutrition education program and are looking for volunteers who would like to participate in that role, as well.
