Volunteer Opportunities 

 

Farmers Market

Each Saturday, we must load an average of 35 Vendors into Forsyth Park with all of their equipment (tables, chairs, canopies, display materials) and all of their products.  This task takes many hands and we affectionately call it the “farmers’ market workout.”

Times:

1. Set-up: 7:00am-9:00am

2. Break-down: 12:30pm-2:00pm

Location: South end of Forsyth Park

Nutrition Education

Volunteer assists Lead Educator to provide food education such as cooking demos, tastings, and other activities as needed on Farm Truck 912 and at the Saturday farmers market. Volunteers also will help to assist Lead Educator with A Taste of African Heritage classes, a 6-week course held 3 times per year. 


The Forsyth Farmers’ Market began as a volunteer run organization and, while we have part time staff now, we still accomplish the bulk of our work via volunteers.  Our community is greatly enriched by the contributions of our wonderful volunteers.  We hope you’ll join them in helping us sustain the Forsyth Farmers’ Market.
