Description & Details

Withrow Park Farmers' Market


Do you love being outdoors?

Do you want to learn about local food?

Want to meet a great bunch of people and be part of a wonderful community initiative?

Then the Withrow Park Farmers' Market is the place for you!


Who we are: 

The Withrow Park Farmers' Market has been a SATURDAY morning outdoor community hub for 13 summers! It is a place where Ontario farmers and local entrepreneurs share sustainable food with Toronto's eaters. To learn more visit us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram!


Volunteer roles: 

We are looking for friendly and energetic volunteers to help in the running of our farmers' market. Duties may include: assisting vendors with set-up, setting up the market information table, supervising traffic, answering inquirers, serving customers at our coffee tent, keeping the coffee tent clean & washing dishes as needed, assisting with special events, distributing fliers, writing our chalkboard signs, helping with children's activities, and packing up at market closing.


Ideally we are looking for volunteers who can commit to 3 markets or more!  

There will also be a unique experience for dedicated volunteers to interact and develop an informative relationship with sustainable local farmers and entrepreneurs.


Volunteer shifts every Saturday:

Market Set-up: 7:30am - 9:30am (Are you an early riser!? This is when we need the most help setting up the market and helping farmers!)

Market Volunteer: 8am - 11am

Market Close: 11am - 2pm

Kids' Crafts: 8:30am - 11:30am and/or 11:15am to 1:30pm

Season ends: October 12, 2019 

Location: The Withrow Park Farmers' Market is located on the North/East corner of Withrow Park next to the children's playground. Withrow Park is in the heart of the Riverdale community and a short walk from Greektown on the Danforth. Closest subway stations are PAPE and CHESTER.
