Volunteer Role:

We are looking for enthusiastic Parking Guide Volunteers to help out on Saturdays at the Withrow Park Farmers' Market.

This role is best suited for someone 16 years of age and older. Bonus if you have experience driving! 


The market runs every Saturday Starting June 1 until October 12, 2019. Ideally we are looking for volunteers who can commit to 3 markets or more over the season! The volunteer shifts for this role are short shifts (only 1.5hrs), but this is a very important role! Volunteers are also welcome to stay longer if they are interested in gaining more hours or helping in different capacities. 

- Morning set-ups: 7:30am to 9am

- Afternoon load-out: 12:30pm to 2pm (although we usually finish by 1:30pm)
