From groups to individuals – and no matter what level of commitment you have in mind – the South Durham Farmers’ market is happy to have your help. Currently, we have volunteers ranging in age from 10 to 70 years old who are helping with a wide range of activities – and we hope that you will be one of them. Email our volunteer coordinator for more information on ways to serve at market.
Arrive before the market opens and help set up the managers’ tent, place cones and signs around the market, and possibly help vendors set up. This requires about an hour of work (max) at the beginning or end of market days.
Hang out at the market manager’s tent and greet shoppers, help sell market swag, and generally make the market a fun experience for everyone. It’s okay if you don’t know all the answers – there will always be somebody at the market that you can direct people toward for more information. Sign up for a minimum of one hour and the time will fly by as you enjoy the live music and friendly faces.
