VOLUNTEER

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THE MARKET A BETTER PLACE FOR ALL

TYPES OF VOLUNTEERING

Friends of the Farmers Market – Board Membership

  • Help guide the growth of our markets and ensure a permanent home for future public markets in Rochester! Friends of the Farmers Market is seeking board members for a two-year (renewable) term.​

  • Flexible leadership opportunities with monthly meetings and numerous ways to contribute. If you have ideas for how to improve the market experience, we’re the group for you!​

  • We are especially seeking board members with fundraising experience.

Welcome Booth

  • Perfect for residents who are familiar with our markets and would like to welcome newcomers and meet new local food lovers in our community.

  • May-October, we’re seeking volunteers to offer market maps, highlight special activities and sell Rochester Farmers Markets merchandise with proceeds going to the nonprofit Friends of the Farmers Market.

  • We would like volunteers to commit to at least a 2-hour shift on their chosen market date. We will supply tables, shade, and supplies.

  • We are especially seeking volunteers who speak more than one language!

Power of Produce (POP)

  • POP is a youth program which offers kids a $2 token to spend on a fruit or vegetable each time they attend the market (~mid-June through Sep).

  • This is a family-friendly volunteer opportunity to teach kids about healthy food and/or offer samples/activities! Organizational partners are welcome.

  • We would like the POP booth to be open from 8:30-11:30 each weekend the program is offered, and 2-3 volunteers is easiest. We will provide all other materials.

Farmers Market Aggregation Project

  • We are seeking volunteers to sort, pack, label and deliver farm products to local businesses (adults only, full season). This is a great way to learn more about our local food system!

  • We anticipate needing help from 10 AM – 1 PM on market Saturdays.
