Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To enhance the livability of all of our community members (i.e.; farmers, vendors, local business owners & consumers) through the establishment of a Maple Valley Farmers’ Market. As a community gathering place, the Farmers’ Market will become a location to discover all of the uniqueness that a Farmers’ Market has to offer. Most importantly, weekly shopping at the Farmer’s Market will help financially support and sustain local/regional family farmers, vendors and local business owners.
The Maple Valley Farmers Market was established in the Spring of 2008 when a group of community leaders banned together and began to dream collectively of a Farmers’ Market becoming a reality in Maple Valley. They began meeting weekly and discussed the possibilities of what a Farmers’ Market would look like and what would it take to roll out the first Farmers’ Market right here in Maple Valley. Initially, in-depth research was required to build the foundation, coupled with visits to neighboring and regional Farmers Markets, as well as talking to Farmer Market Managers and a diverse assortment of vendors. A community-wide survey was completed and the process to create a Maple Valley Farmer’s Market was created.
Our Farmers' Market is a community based effort and is co-sponsored by the Tahoma School District and the City of Maple Valley. We are sincerely grateful for the cooperative partnership that has been developed and we are thankful for the many volunteers working together to ensure a Farmers' Market becomes part of Maple Valley's history.
