Get Involved – Become a Market Volunteer!
We are in need of volunteers for the 2016 season! As a local, community driven market determined to bring fresh, delicious, locally sourced food to the Corcoran and South Minneapolis community we depend on community volunteers like you.
Volunteers are needed for 2-3 hour shifts every market day to assist with processing SNAP-EBT token and credit card token sales, compost and recycling education, set-up and tear-down of the market, customer counts, and customer engagement. Commit as much or as little time as you can. CLICK HERE for more info or to sign up, or contact Mallory at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Confused about the market’s location?
Don’t be! We’re just 300 ft east of where we used to be. See the map below for our exact location:
The Midtown Market strives to bring sustainable, affordable food to the community. While there's no roof over an outdoor market, the Market still has overhead expenses: as farmers are busy growing the vegetables and fruits, market staff are hard at work on the nuts and bolts of making a market run. Administering the EBT access, providing a stage for local performers, even the signs and maintaining the parking lot where it all happens takes money and staff time.
Vendor fees only cover half of the cost of running the Market. We rely on the community to contribute the rest. Please donate today!
Online contributions are quick, easy and secure. The Midtown Farmers Market is a project of the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization — please designate your donation to the Market. The Midtown Farmers Market is a 501(c)3. Learn more about what it means to be a Friend of the Market here.
