Mill City Farmers Market values our volunteers as significant members of our team! We have several opportunities to be a volunteer at the market on Saturdays. Join your friends and neighbors in educating the community and supporting healthy foods, local farmers!
Kitchen Demo Volunteer
Work in our Mill City Cooks kitchen to support our weekly healthy and seasonal cooking demonstrations. Chop and prepare vegetables, assist our market chefs and local celebrity guest chefs, plate dishes, and hand out recipes and samples to the crowd. Novices and expert cooks welcome! The Kitchen Demo shift is from 9:30AM to 12:30PM every Saturday of our outdoor season. Please wear closed-toe shoes! Sign up to be a Kitchen Demo Volunteer here.
Zero Waste Educator
Educate market shoppers about our Zero Waste composting program. Last year we composted 94% of waste at our markets thanks to the help of our wonderful volunteers! Teach shoppers about compostable plastics, manage composting stations, and collect data for the Zero Waste program! There’s no need to be an expert – every volunteer is provided with an orientation, handouts and information to make his/her shift a fun way to spread the word about waste reduction! The Zero Waste Volunteer shift is from 10AM to 1:15PM every Saturday of our outdoor season. Sign up to be a Zero Waste Educator here.
Annual Benefit Planning Committee
Looking for ways to be more involved and support your farmers market? Do you want to meet some fun, creative people who are passionate about supporting local foods and farmers? Join our Benefit Planning Committee! We are seeking committee members to help plan our annual benefit dinner on September 10, 2017. This event is our major fundraiser, raising nearly 1/3 of our annual budget, and it directly benefits our farmers. It is always a highlight of the summer, featuring a delicious, harvest meal prepared by our market chefs.
The benefit committee meets monthly April through August, and there are lots of ways to be involved. If you are interested in helping out, please email the market’s executive director, Martha Archer at email@example.com. Thank you!
If you have any other skills that you would like to lend to the market, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be in touch about other volunteer opportunities!
