The Spryfield & District Farmers Market is largely dependent on the kindness and generosity of our volunteer base. Each market week, we require a team of dedicated volunteers to help make the magic happen.
If you want to help make our farmers’ market the best in the city, and have some time and energy to do so, we’d love to hear from you. We will try our best to match your interests with our needs.
Market Opening - Market day is a busy time. Each market requires our signs to be placed outdoors, all between 7:00-7:30AM.
Market greeters - Everyone is welcome and we like to make sure they count too! Want to be a market greeter and people counter? We also sell 50/50 tickets and need a few people to sell those throughout the morning.
Kids' Activity Table - We're looking for a creative someone to occasionally run the kids' activity table from 8:30AM - 11:30AM. Face-painting skills are an asset.
Photographers - We would love some help capturing the market-in-action! These images would go a long way to support the promotion of the market both online and in print. And of course, photographers will always receive credit for their work.
Poster / Flyer Distribution - Each week during market season, a few days prior to market day, posters and/or flyers may need to be distributed to businesses and community bulletin boards. Volunteers are needed to help with distribution.
Signmakers/Creative contributors to Promotion - do you have special skills with respect to leveraging promotion and advertising? We operate on a shoe-string budget and are always looking for creative ways to reach our folks. Got a suggestion or a partnership?
