Info Booth Assistant / Market Ambassador - Sign up at www.agriculturalinstitute.org/volunteer

Do you want to be directly involved in our markets? Are you passionate about increasing food access? Our Info Booth Assistants and Market Ambassadors are hands-on support staff who assist AIM staff and customers in creating a dynamic, positive, and welcoming market environment. You will also process EBT transactions, sell merchandise and help collect stall fees.

The Newark Farmers Market is one of the most diverse farmers markets in the Easy Bay. Welcoming a wide range of farmers, food purveyors, and artisans, the diversity of the produce and products truly is a reflection of the vibrant community of shoppers that support the market. The Newark market is open every Sunday, year-round, rain or shine, from 9am to 1pm, and features over 55 farmers and vendors.
