Volunteer With Us

What really sets our market apart from other farmers markets is the way we foster a strong sense of community. Our farmers, volunteers, shoppers, and community partners all work together to create a welcoming space each Thursday night. If that sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, we’d love to welcome you into our community of volunteers!

Volunteers are a huge part of what makes Mission Community Market run. Most of our volunteers help out on Thursdays at the market as greeters. This involves greeting the public as they enter the market, answering any questions that they have, selling t-shirts and bags, helping customers with EBT transactions (food stamps), and other general market help that might come up. We provide you with a training at the market. You don’t have to come every week, but we love it if you can!

We usually recommend that you try out a shift as a greeter during a Thursday market. You may find that this is extremely fulfilling, or you may even seek more involvement! If this is the case and you don’t mind getting your hands a little dirty, helping with setup or teardown are great options once you’ve learned the ropes.

Volunteer Opportunities

We have needs inside and outside of the market that can be tailored to your interests, such as:
Market Greeter: Welcome shoppers to the market and answer questions.
Outreach: Have an outgoing personality and love to help spread the word? Hang posters in neighborhood businesses, hand out business cards, or host a table at community events like Sunday Streets.
Marketing: Contribute content to our blog (recipes, articles, etc), help with social media at the market, or help with graphic design needs.
Translation: If you happen to speak Spanish, help us translate marketing materials.
Event planning: Work with an Events Committee made up of volunteers, staff, and board members to plan annual events, appreciation mixers, and fundraisers.
Building projects: From time to time we need help with building market infrastructure like benches and signs.
Data entry/office hours: If you have a couple hours free during the week and want to come to our office and put in a little time, we can always use the help!

Thank you, amazing volunteers, for your invaluable contributions!
