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. Since the Market’s inception, volunteers have played a valuable role in its operation, and will continue to do so as the Market grows and takes on new and exciting challenges.

The job of a Market Volunteer is to assist the St. John’s Farmers’ Market staff, including the Executive Director, Market Manager, and Volunteer and Activities Coordinator, on Market days. Assignments and activities may include:

•   Staffing the information table
•   Answering consumer questions (e.g. locations of restrooms and ATMs)
•   Managing stall lines to prevent the obstruction of foot traffic around the market
•   Vendor support
•   Assisting with Market day activities

Market days happen every Saturday from 9:00AM to 4:00PM. Volunteer shifts are available for 4 hours on Fridays, 4 or 8 hours on Saturdays, and 3 or 6 hours on Sundays.

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 an orientation session – and then you’ll be on your way to helping out on market days!
