Why Volunteer with RCFM:
Royal City Farmers Market values the contribution our volunteers offer us.

Here are some of the volunteer positions we have available at the market:
RCFM Booth: tasks include selling t shirts, memberships, and tote bags; handing out information; and answering questions at the market itself on Thursdays from 3-7. Occasionally, we set up our booth at other community events, and would need volunteers there as well. You will be the face of RCFM on market days and this is a wonderful way to stay in touch with the community. If you love to chat and have a fun personality, this would be a great fit for you!
Vendor Services: Volunteers are required to help vendors out at the market – cover their stall while they take a brief break, bring them water or change and help to load or unload their vehicles. All of our vendors are extremely friendly and this is a good way to get to know some of the people you shop from.
Set up and Tear Down: Volunteers are required to set up our booth and take it down at the end of the market.
Signage: We require volunteers to set up the signage in the area at 7AM, and also to collect it after the market ends.
Website: Volunteers are required to scan for images on flickr and tag them correctly, add images to vendor pages, maintain the website, write blog entries. Proficiency in WordPress blogging platform is required. This position is great for people looking to boost their portfolio or add to their resume. There is plenty to do for the website and blog and we welcome any of your creative input.
Twitter / Facebook : Relevant information needs to be tweeted on our twitter account and Facebooked. An understanding of both Twitter and Facebook is required.
