#4) Wilmington Farmers Market Seeks Volunteers

 The Wilmington Farmers Market is excited to announce that they have begun planning for their 11th season, returning to the Swain Green, Sundays from 10am to 1pm, starting June 13 through October 3 as an in-person market.

Joining us are founding vendor Seafood Express, and long-time participants North of Boston Farm (formerly Arrowhead Farm) and Gaouette Farm. Also returning to the market will be Cupcake City, Red Antler Apothecary, and new addition Ugly Baby Soaps. Stay tuned as other vendors commit to their dates as we get closer to opening day.

We’re also expanding  our all-volunteer board, and are specifically looking for a social media manager, as well as a volunteer coordinator. If you are interested, please email  wilmingtonfarmersmarket1@gmail.com. And if you want to help keep the market going, but don’t have skills in these areas, email us anyway and let us know how you can help out.

Or do you want to help but you don’t feel that you can commit to more than a few hours?  We are also in need of adult and/or high school volunteers to assist with set up, break down, and the kids’ table.  This is a great way to fulfill community service hours. You can easily sign up by going to our website, www.wilmingtonfarmersmarket.com, and clicking the Volunteer button.

We’ll be asking that everyone participate in COVID safety measures while at the market, until we hear from our Board of Health that it is no longer necessary.
