VFM Volunteer Application
We need your help during COVID-19!

Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with the Vancouver Farmers Market.
Now more than ever, we need your help to make our market a safe community space for all to enjoy.

As you are probably aware many aspects of the farmers market have changed over the past few months. To promote health and safety during COVID-19, we have developed new guidelines for staff, customers, vendors, and volunteers.

New Volunteer Guidelines:

-All Volunteer Market positions are no/low contact.

- All staff, vendors, and volunteers will wear face masks to assist in protecting themselves and the community by preventing the spread of COVID-19. (The Vancouver Farmers Market strongly encourages volunteers to bring their masks, but we will also provide you with one to wear.)

- All staff, vendors, and volunteers will wear gloves, when applicable.

- All staff, vendors, and volunteers will practice 6ft social distancing.

The Vancouver Farmers Market is dedicated to cultivating a program providing meaningful experiences for our volunteers while also serving the market. The VFM is more than just a marketplace, it is a community hub, and an opportunity for people to meet the small businesses and farms growing and preparing their food. Becoming a volunteer at the Vancouver Farmers market means supporting your community, promoting Vancouver development, and becoming an advocate for our local economy and food system.

If you are interested in becoming a Vancouver Farmers Market Volunteer, please complete the following application. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@vancouverfarmersmarket.com or (360) 737-8298.
