It takes the community to make the Indy Winter Farmers Market a success!
On Monday, Nov. 7 and Monday, Nov. 14, come learn about how volunteers and the community can help the IWFM this season. Familiarize yourself with our new space, get the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about volunteering, and learn about our Volunteer Challenge! (see below)
Volunteers are needed in different shifts to help vendors unload product at the beginning of the market, reload product and tear down tables at the end of the market, and help welcome and assist shoppers at the market info table during the market. Sign up for volunteer shifts at our Volunteer Spot page!
What is our Volunteer Challenge? Glad you asked! This season, the IWFM is initiating a challenge among Indianapolis neighborhoods and local businesses/organizations. Each week, every volunteer will earn one point for either a neighborhood or organization which they support. Yes, you can bring your friends, families, and coworkers to earn points too, and you don’t have to live in the neighborhood or work at the organization. There will be a tally sheet at the market so that everyone can track who’s in the lead (we’ve already had one neighborhood guarantee that they’ll win the prize!). At the end of the season, the neighborhood and the organization with the most points will each win $100 worth of vegetable seeds and starts! Ever wanted to start a community or workplace garden? This could be your chance!
The IWFM wouldn’t be in existence if it weren’t for great volunteers. We are so thankful for all the support we receive from our community. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you soon!
