At every market, the farmers start unloading early in order to be set up and ready when the doors open. In the winter, farmers have an extra distance to the unloading process, they can’t just pull their trucks right up to their spot like they do in summertime. So we gather a crew of volunteers to help them ferry in their goods. Many hands make light work, and it’s a fun way to get going in the morning and see all the food pass through the doors before the rest of the shoppers arrive.
Lifting and carrying not for you? You can spend some time helping out at our information booth or using our click counter as we track the number of people who come to market!
