Each of these areas offers flexible scheduling and the opportunity to use your talents to bring the market to the attention of our community.

Time Commitment: Whatever you can do!

 

Adopt a Sandwich Board

“Market Today” sandwich board signs are placed on our 5 major roadways each market day. Volunteers can “adopt” a sandwich board and be responsible for putting it out each Friday morning during the season and retrieving no later than 9am on Saturday. Sandwich boards can be stored at your home or retrieved and returned to our storage site each week. Sites include: Big Lots at Pearl Street, Route 2A near the bridge, Route 2A at the cemetery, Maple Street at ADL, and Route 15 at Educational Drive.

Time Commitment: 15 minutes on Market Friday mornings and evenings throughout the season.

More ways to get involved:

Musicians Wanted

Each week we like to enhance the atmosphere of the market with local music. Email 5cornersfarmersmarket@gmail.com if you want to perform at a market!

Recipe Squad

One of our goals is to educate shoppers and promote produce purchases by offering preparation tips and recipes for popular produce and “under-appreciated” vegetables (like leeks, rutabagas, celery root, and collard greens). Activities include researching and distributing recipes, produce purchasing and storage tips, plus interesting facts and trivia concerning local veggies and fruits.

Market Outreach

Every spring we distribute posters and flyers in local businesses, community centers, libraries and more. If you can help with this effort, we’ll provide you with tape, pins and a stack of posters – as many as you think you can get out!
