Volunteer Opportunities

 

1. Saturday Market Set-Up & Break Down

 

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 product.  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


2. Farm Truck 912 Volunteer

Volunteer will assist the Farm Truck 912 manager at various farm truck stops. Responsibilities will include farm truck set up, arranging agricultural products on display racks,  assisting with inventory,  assisting farm truck shoppers with purchases, and farm truck break down.

3. Assistant to Nutrition Educator

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.
