Volunteer

The Midtown Farmers Market was founded in 2003 by a group of neighborhood volunteers with a vision. As a nonprofit community-based market, we continue to rely on the support of passionate volunteers to make the market magic happen every week. Dig the market? Join the crew!

Volunteers are needed for 2-3 hr. shifts every Saturday to assist with market set-up and tear-down, customer service and token sales, staffing the market info booth, customer counts, photography, and other market management tasks. Find more information and sign up for a shift here.

We also have opportunites for ongoing skills-based volunteers in the following areas (5-10 hrs/month):

  • Market Photographer
  • Handyperson (carpentry, equipment repair, etc.)
  • Customer Engagement
  • Outreach & Marketing
  • Market Writer/Reporter
  • Database Management

For more information about these positions, contact Mallory – mallory@midtownfarmersmarket.org.


Donate

Vendor fees only cover about half the cost of running the market. To make up the rest, we rely on sponsors, grants and the generous support of members of our community. Your contributions make the market happen, from tents and tables to organizing and communicating with vendors to the equipment and training for accepting EBT that makes the fresh food at our market accessible to everyone. The market is an important part of our community and the lives of our customers and it needs your support.

You can donate online, mail a check to the market office, or make your contribution in person via the giant carrot located by the entrance to the market.


Community Tables

Each season, the Midtown Farmers Market welcomes nonprofit organizations to connect with community members at the Market through our Community Table program.  Community Tables offer a great opportunity for program outreach, awareness-raising, education, marketing, fundraising, member or volunteer recruitment, and old-fashioned community building. Interested in tabling at the market? Click here to read our full Community Table Policy and to submit your application online, or download a printable policy and application here.
