Our volunteers are essential as they are responsible for erecting our tents, tables, and signs. They assist vendors with moving their products and setting up, waste management, and also help guide our patrons. At the end they pack it all up again so we can perform the same market magic the following week. We have broken up our Market Day needs into three shifts: Set up, Vendor/Market Support, and Take Down. Each shift is minimum 90 minutes, maximum 2 hours. Volunteers are welcome to sign up for more than one shift a market.
