One of our favorite parts of the markets we run is the magical transformations we see each day. At all three locations, we change an ordinary parking lot into a vibrant community gathering place and back again within just a few hours.
If you’ve ever been at the market at closing time, you may have caught a glimpse of how quickly things go back to normal, but did you know that all of that work is done by only a few people? Along with a dedicated corps of volunteers, the Neighborhood Roots staff move about 1000lbs a day to help create your market!
We could use your help. Our Nokomis market has plenty of opportunities for new volunteers
If you’re interested in learning more about the behind the scenes view of the market, sign up for volunteering now! You can fill out an interest form here. Not only will you learn a lot about the market and help your community, if you do set up or tear down, you’ll also get quite the workout. Several volunteers have told us that their work with us is their new favorite arm exercise.
If heavy lifting isn’t your thing, that is okay! We have lots of other opportunities for volunteers to get involved. Just let us know in your interest form what might work for you. As you see in the photo above, we’ve got volunteers of all ages and abilities, and we’d love to see what you bring to the table!
