Opportunity Description:

The St. John’s Farmers’ Market recognizes the importance of volunteers to the development of strong and connected communities across Canada, and to the growth of a more diverse, inclusive, and vibrant St. John’s community in particular.

Assignments and activities may include:

•   Staffing the information table
•   Answering consumer questions (e.g. locations of restrooms and ATMs)
•   Assisting Activities Coordinator on Program Day
•   Operating Market Shop
•   Vendor support
•   Keeping the Market Café eating area and other spaces in the market clean and free of
excess litter

Market days happen every Saturday from 9:00AM to 4:00PM, Sunday until September 27th. Shifts are avaliable in 1, 2 and 3 hour spaces beginning at 10AM. 

The process for applying to be a volunteer with us is to fill out and return our application form (which will be sent in response to inquiries). If we think you’ll be a good fit for the organization, you’ll be contacted to schedule an in-person interview. If you’re recruited as a volunteer, you will attend a group orientation session – and then you’ll be on your way to helping out on market days!
