Over the past several years the New Glasgow Farmers Market has become an integral part of our community. We are a regional farmers market that brings people together from all over the county (and beyond)each Saturday morning.

The market is a non-profit, volunteer organization that depends on its dedicated volunteers to bring the best experience to vendors and customers alike. Each Saturday we require people to fill various positions to run as smoothly as possible.

Right now, we need help in our café as well as selling donuts, though we do sometimes need additional volunteers for special initiatives. What’s involved with the café?

  • Scooping Ice Cream (Seasonally)
  • Serving Coffee, tea and hot chocolate, single donuts
  • Ringing through customer orders (This is easy, we will train you)
  • With selling donut boxes, you are just ringing in the orders with Square POS
  • complete cleaning duties of your area before you leave

When working in the café, you will be standing on your feet for the duration of your shift and during ice cream season, there is more bending.

You don’t have to volunteer every week, you give us your availability and we’ll work with that. Once you are confirmed for a shift, we do ask you to keep your commitment with us – we rely on you! You can sign up to volunteer individually or with a friend or coworkers – let us know and we’ll book your group together!

Benefits for our youth – Students, this is a great way to gain experience for your resume. You will gain customer service experience, retail experience and connect with your community. It’s an opportunity to grow your skills. If you are a reliable, hard worker that attends your scheduled shifts, we are happy to provide a letter of reference. Many of our students that started with us will come back from time to time.

You can contact us at volunteer@ngfarmmarket.com with any questions about the roles or to book yourself in for a specific day.
