Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The farmers market will cultivate a commitment to quality local products and produce in a pleasant, easily accessible location by offering goods that will enrich our community through environmentally conscious and healthy food choices, social exchange and economic growth.
The Chelsea Farmers Market and Bushel Basket Markets have provided quality products from fresh produce to hand-made crafts to the City of Chelsea and surrounding communities for over 20 years. There are many opportunities to increase the strength, diversity and educational opportunities that the markets can offer, so we can continue our role as business incubator for new craft and food business owners in this community. We provide economic stimulus to the community through grant dollars, training for vendors and marketing for these great local businesses, and recruiting new businesses to join our market and improve the variety and diversity of what we offer. Markets take place Wednesdays and Saturdays in the summer May - October, and in the winter November - December. Summer markets are held in downtown Chelsea at the Palmer Auto Lot.
