Being a volunteer at the Carmel Farmers Market is an extremely rewarding experience. It is also a great way to meet new people, especially if you are new to Carmel. Here at the Market, we are pretty informal. And we have lots of fun together while providing a great event for the families of our area.
Please read through the following volunteer opportunities. Then think about where your talents could best be utilized. There is no experience needed. Our volunteer coordinator will partner you with other volunteers to show you how everything works.
This committee helps our vendors on a weekly basis with any concerns they may have. Additionally, we visit the kitchen or farm of approximately 75% of our vendors each year. We LOVE visiting our vendors to better understand and see what their hard work brings to the market. This committee is also responsible for collecting contracts and paperwork, assigning booth spaces and the annual Vendor Appreciation Dinner.

We need one or two people to compile information and send out our weekly newsletter to the more than 1,500 people who receive this communication.

Each July 4th, the Carmel Farmers Market enters a float in the Carmelfest Parade. It is a lot of work, but great fun, to put together our float every year. Come join this group, and you can actually be in the parade!
Each week, we have a musical group provide entertainment to our guests in the Amphitheater at Carter Green. There is a committee that selects a variety of musical groups for the listening pleasure of all who attend the market.
