There are many ways to get involved as a volunteer at market – we intentionally have a large pool of volunteers so that the average volunteer only does 1-2 two-hour shifts each month. We love volunteer appreciation as well, so we arranged for volunteers to receive the occasional gift card from market sponsors and invitations to our seasonal volunteer appreciation parties!
Lots of our volunteers only volunteer occasionally or during their favourite season – in short, we are very flexible. We love tracking hours for our young volunteers and writing reference letters at the end of each season.
