We have volunteer opportunities at the Leucadia, Hillcrest, and La Jolla farmers markets every Sunday.

Join a team of volunteers for just over an hour to recover leftover produce at the end of the farmers' market. You'll be handing bins out to farmers, collecting them once they're full of produce, and loading them into the transport vehicle(s). No special skills are required and you will be with a volunteer leader every step of the way.

Leucadia Address: 185 Union St, Encinitas

Hillcrest Address: 3960 Normal St, San Diego

La Jolla Address: 7335 Girard Ave, La Jolla
