This Week at DFM: June 12

by | Jun 10, 2021

Do you have time to join Davidson Farmers Market’s “Lime Green Team” of volunteers?

Hello DFM Shoppers, 

Part of making DFM a vibrant and friendly market for our vendors and shoppers are our amazing volunteers (the Green Team.) With their help we’re able to set-up and greet every vendor in the morning, assist shoppers, manage special events, work the Market Tent, support vendors during the market, and help clean up after the market is over. They do so much, always with a smile on their face and eager to help. 

As we continue to resume our pre-Covid operations and amenities (live music, events, chef demos, etc.) we want to continue growing our Green Team and volunteer opportunities. There are several options and time slots to volunteer with DFM. 

They include: 

Market Set-Up – (7 – 9 a.m.)
Set up tents for vendors, deliver tables, set out signage, and assist vendors as needed.

Market Support – (9 – 10:30 a.m.)
Help with monitoring the Market by assisting shoppers, counting shoppers, and assisting Market Coordinator as needed.

Market Support – (10:30 a.m. 12 p.m.)
Help with monitoring the Market by assisting shoppers, counting shoppers, and assisting Market Coordinator as needed.

Market Takedown – (12 – 12:30 p.m.)
Assist vendors with breaking down tents, tables and signage, and returning everything to the Market shed.

If you would like to volunteer this Saturday, you can sign-up here. If you would like to learn more about volunteer opportunities or join our volunteer list, email Courtney

This week, when visiting the market, make sure to thank our volunteers! 

See you all this Saturday. 

Happy eating,
