Volunteer with us
The Swarthmore Farmers Market has become a cornerstone of the community. There are 30 Markets throughout the year that the volunteer staff make happen. Most of our volunteers really enjoy their time at the market. Why? They can take on a role that suits their interests and schedule, they can learn new skills (who doesn't want to know how to set up a 10x10 tent quickly and efficiently without pinching their fingers??), and they are joining a committed group of people who are working hard together to support local farmers, food artisans, musicians, artists, and community groups.
Volunteers have lots of options: you can sign up for early morning set up duty---7:30-9:30; or an early afternoon break down slot--1:15-2:00; or helping out with the kids' activity, usually from around 9:15 to 12:30. If you'd like to experience the entire day, you can sign up as an Assistant Manager, which goes from 7:30 to 2:00. Sign up for one, several, or whatever role fits your schedule.
All ages welcome! Make it a family affair! The Swarthmore Farmers Market also sponsors the opportunity to earn community service hours for high school and college students.

A huge THANK YOU to all of you
Many of you came out Saturday after Saturday in the rain and the sun, in the heat and the cold, buying fresh and local foods, supporting community and kid organizations, local artists and musicians, and helping make our market and community the best that it can be!
From all of us - the farmers and specialty vendors, artisans, musicians and volunteers
Until the spring,

A Video About the Market (lovingly produced by Beautiful Social from St. Joseph's University)
As said by a Swarthmore Farmers Market guest, "Tom (Monari) and Sara (Williams) were awesome, and so were the children who danced to their music!"
We love having live music at every market. Come visit us and see all that we have to offer!
