Farmers Market Volunteer Application

  1. Volunteering with Issaquah Farmers Market

    The Issaquah Farmers Market is continuing to accept volunteers to assist with day of market activities throughout the farmers market season at Pickering Barn! Volunteering is a great chance for seniors, adults, and teens to participate in the market, and spend time sharing their skills and experiences with others.

    Volunteers can expect to doing a variety of tasks during market setup, operation, and tear down including tasks like setting up the market, placing tables and market materials out for public use, assisting vendors with their needs, monitoring the food court, monitoring loading zones, monitoring customer and pedestrian traffic, taking out trash, offering assistant at the market information booth, assisting with market teardown and closing activities, and much more.

    Volunteering is conducted outside, regardless of weather conditions. Volunteers should be prepared to lift items, carry items, and work outside in varying environmental conditions.

    On market days, volunteer hours are available from 7am and 3pm. The market is open to the public from 9am to 2pm Saturdays. To aid in scheduling, shifts are offered for volunteers in the morning and afternoon; the morning shift is from 7am to 11am, and the afternoon shift is from 11am to 3pm.

    Groups are encouraged to volunteer as well! If you represent a group who would like to volunteer at the market, please email with the size of your group, and details on your groups volunteering goals.

    Upon submission volunteer applications will be reviewed by Issaquah Farmers Market Management and if opportunities exist, will be contacted for scheduling, training, and any additional steps needed to begin volunteer service.
