The Hollywood Farmers Market would not be possible without the help of many volunteers. Volunteers sit on the Board of Directors, write newspaper articles, and keep the market running every Saturday during the season.
Being a volunteer for the Hollywood Farmers Market means meeting great people in your neighborhood, learning about the market and the importance of fresh local foods, and most of all … having fun!
MARKET DAY VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
- Setup: Help set up canopies, umbrellas, tables, chairs, and signs from 7:00 to 8:00 AM. This position can include heavy lifting.
- Greeters move throughout the market answering questions and directing customers to their favorite vendors. Greeters give market-vendors bathroom breaks, take pictures, hand out dog biscuits and handbills, and perform the hourly customer count. This volunteer role involves more interaction with customers and vendors than any other.
- Information Booth: Info Booth volunteers staff the Hollywood Farmers Market booth. Duties include answering customer questions, selling market merchandise, and filling in for the customer count when needed.
- Breakdown: Help take down canopies, umbrellas, tables, chairs, and signs from 12:45 to 2:00 PM. This position can include heavy lifting.
