Volunteer at The Farmers Market

Helping Hands Needed!

Help us grow! We're always looking for enthusiastic help. 

We appreciate our volunteers; we know the value each bring to our farmers market! 

Click the Volunteer Application Action Button to the right to apply.  

Here are some of the activities we could use a helping hand with.


Volunteer needs: 


  • Street Clean-up and Monitoring: essential to the smooth and safe operation of the markets, we can ALWAYS use help with these inglorious but phenomenally helpful tasks, particularly at our street-closure markets. This is also a great service to our local communities and neighborhoods. Tasks may include: sweep/trash clean-up before, during and/or after the market, monitoring market entrances.
  • Sandwich Boards Signage: Placement & monitoring sandwich boards & signs displayed on market days each week (retrieving the board from storage site each week).  
  • Market Outreach: distribute Market posters to local businesses, community centers, libraries and more. Help canvas your neighborhood and get the word out about the farmers market season! We'll provide you with flyers and your target area. Do it on your own, or with a buddy. Also a great project for groups such as Girl Scout Troops
  • Kids Events at the Markets: we always need volunteers to help monitor and engage children in these fun activities: Zucchini Races, Pumpkin Decorating, etc. Check out our events calendars for upcoming events at your market. Great fun for anyone who likes kids, families and Farmers Markets!
  • Market Ambassador: promote or educate about farmers markets in your place of work, neighborhood, kids' schools, local events, etc.   Provide basic info and/or education about local farmers markets at your company’s health fairs (or your school, university, social service agency, etc).  This is a great way to help connect our communities to their neighborhood farmers markets, help inspire healthy eating habits, and get the word out about equal access benefits such as EBT, Fresh Bucks, and WIC/Senior FMNP).  (As a nonprofit organization with a small staff, we’re not always able to personally attend the hundreds of health fairs, special/educational events, pop-up activities and service organizations that would like to include farmers market information.  All  community efforts - farmers markets included! - thrive on word-of-mouth.  If you love your farmers market, let the people in your life know about it!  You don't need to be an expert - just share your genuine enthusiasm for these important local food resources.  We supply you with plenty of flyers and let's brainstorm a plan specific to your needs.)
  • Shop with the Chef,  Cooking Classes, Demonstrations, and Special Events:  Shop with the Chef point person, gather supplies, act as sous-chef, pass out samples, for cooking demonstrations etc. Volunteers need good people skills and a Food Handlers card is a plus. Time commitment: several hours on the day of the event (often weekend mornings).
  • Chef and Nutrition Educators: help lead market tours, do educational cooking demonstrations on seasonal market produce, or lead other educational events.
  • Office Projects: occasionally we need help with projects such as data checking, event preparation, data entry, or special projects according to your particular skills.
  • Kids/Teens: we can use your help too!  These jobs don't require you to be at the market for too long, but we sometimes need help with: making water/coffee runs for vendors, ringing the bell to open the market.
  • Photography:  we can always use good photos of the markets - nice crowd shots, interactive people/farmer shots, and photos of the market overall, and of our farmers and vendors in their market booths.  We do have a lot of close-up shots of fruits and vegetables, but if you have some good ones, we'll take them too!  Sometimes we can give credit to the photographer, but frequently photos are used in situations where the name of the market is the only caption we'll have.  If you want to snap some photos with specific people (i.e., shoppers at the markets), be sure to pick up a waiver/consent form from the market info booth, and be courteous in asking folks if it's ok to take their pictures.

"Volunteering at the Torrance Farmers Market is how we started in 2007. Personally it's been incredibly gratifying that led to experiences unlike anything we'd known."
