Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Since 1990, Richfield Recreation Services has coordinated the Richfield Farmers Market in Veterans Memorial Park to provide access to local, healthy, and affordable foods. We offer this transformative gathering space where long-term sustaining connections between MN farmers & producers, community members, and neighbor to neighbor relationships are strengthened. The Market emphasizes educational and recreational activities to promote active living and community enrichment.
The Richfield Farmers Market has a long tradition of offering locally grown produce and products to the Richfield community. The market is held at one of the best locations in the twin cities, in Veterans Memorial Park (64th Street & Portland Ave S), under the wooden picnic pavilion. Around 25 different local farmers & food producers come to sell at the market, many of who have been selling with us for years. Besides the market, the park offers plenty of other fun activities like walking trails through a wooded area and wetland, a mini golf course, Malt-T-Melt's café, an updated adaptive playground, free activities in the arts building as well as holds the Honoring All Veterans Memorial. There is ample seating and onsite restrooms available at the market for customers.
Offices for the Richfield Farmers Market are located at the Richfield Community Center at 7000 Nicollet Ave S. The Farmers Market is held at Veterans Memorial Park at 64th Street and Portland Ave S.
