Volunteers

 

Dear Volunteers:

 

Our volunteers are the fuel that keeps our market running.

Food Access The Marysville Farmers Market (MFM) is an all volunteer run market. If you have an interest in community engagement, food, sustainability, or farmers markets and would like to get involved, we would love to have your help! We value our volunteers and have many ways that you can get involved and give back to your community. You have skills, talents, and interests. We have a place for your to passionately use them.


VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:

Grow a Row

  • Consider growing a ‘Give Back Garden’ this spring and summer in your own backyard.

Special Events

Set Up / Tear Down

This job is physical, but not demanding — teenagers to 80-year-olds can take on the task with success. See this as your weekly physical fitness routine.

  • Set up tents, tables, chairs, and our recycling/waste stations in afternoon before the Market

  • Or come to the Market at the end of the day to tear it all down for storage until next week.
