What

The Caribbean Marketplace would not be possible without the help of many volunteers. Volunteers setup/tear down, write articles, take photos, create videos, and of course, keep the market running every Saturday.

Being a volunteer for the Caribbean Marketplace means meeting great people in your neighborhood, learning about the market and the importance of fresh local foods, and most of all ... having fun!

  • Setup: Help set up umbrellas, tables, chairs, and signs. This position can include heavy lifting.
  • Greeters move throughout the market answering questions and directing customers to their favorite vendors. Greeters give breaks to market vendors, take pictures, hand out dog biscuits and handbills, and perform the hourly customer count. This volunteer role involves more interaction with customers and vendors than any other.
  • Information Booth volunteers run the Caribbean Marketplace booth. Duties include answering customer questions, selling market merchandise, and more.
  • Breakdown: Help take down umbrellas, tables, chairs, and signs. This position can include heavy lifting.
