We love our volunteers! Whether you want to help with one market or several, we have an opportunity for EVERYONE to get involved! Read below and find the one that is right for you (or your group)!
Signs/Sandwich Boards - You will be responsible for one of the signs that will need to be on display the day of the market. You will set it up, and take it down and store it at your home until the next market day!
Kid Farmer Events - Volunteer to help engage our kids under the Kid Market Tent. Each week has a new activity that allows the kids to get involved. This volunteer opportunity is fabulous for anyone that loves working with children and getting them to show their creative side!
Photography - We always need photos to use in our marketing. You would be taking pictures of our vendors, products, visitor photos, and photos of our market events. You will even get an official "press badge" to wear!
Video - We love showing off our market on our website and social media pages! To do this, we need videos! You will be taking videos of the opening bell, special events, entertainment, and anything we have going on at the market that day.
Parking - We need help ensuring that our visitors can safely enter, park and then exit the market parking lot. You will be directing cars coming into the market area, pointing them in the right direction to park...all while wearing an official bright vest seen from miles away!
Marketing Ambassadors - We need help getting the word out! Our marketing ambassadors will be responsible for ensuring a specific location (local businesses, libraries, post offices and more) has our flyers displayed or posted during market season. This volunteer opportunity would be an excellent project for a group of people wanting to volunteer together!
Setup\Takedown\Cleanup - We have some vendors that need an extra hand. Setup is between 2:30-4 pm and takedown is 7-8 pm. We also need help checking the field for debris/trash after the market is over. Whether you volunteer for setup, takedown, or cleaning up after everyone leaves, we will happily accept your help!
Counter - We LOVE to get a count of people to see how much we grow from week to week! Pick a market to count our visitors with a hand-held counter that we will provide you! And yes...You can wear a vest too!!
Social Media Ambassadors - This volunteer opportunity is for anyone and everyone! You don't even have to sign up for this one! We would love to have help promoting our market, and you can do this by sharing pictures on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter and tagging the Ledyard Farmers Market. Family pictures, silly pictures of your kids, or pictures of the loot that you bought, we will accept photos, enthusiasm, and videos! Thank you!!
