The Peninsula Country Market is looking for volunteers for Saturday mornings, starting June 4, from 8:45 - 1:00 pm.

The market runs from June 4 - Thanksgiving.  You would not be required to work every week.

The official title of the volunteers is Market Ambassador and the duties include:

  • Greeting patrons and reminding them of the market rules such as social distancing.
  • Supervising and educating the patrons on recycling/composting
  • Answering general questions
  • Selling produce bags
  • Handing out complimentary shopping bags
  • Managing the Market Bucks contest
  • Handing out The Farmers Market Nutritional Coupons to designated patrons
  • Assisting Market Manager and Volunteer Coordinator when required

A team of 3 people are scheduled at every market, so that volunteers can take breaks and not be left standing for the full shift.

If you are interested please send an email to Anne Sherber, Volunteer Coordinator for the PCM: annesherber@shaw.ca
