It’s time to open your windows, till those flower beds, and attend the first Woodbine Farmers’ Market on Saturday, May 7. That’s right, we said Saturday
. The farmers’ market will be held on Saturdays from 9:00am to 12:00pm this year at the Coleman Park Community Center (same location as last year).
We all agree that last year’s inaugural market season was a success, mostly due to such wonderful support and involvement from the Woodbine/South Nashville community. Thank you!
This season, we’re instituting an Adopt-a-Market program for members of the community who are interested in volunteering but need to plan ahead in order to do so. Individuals, couples, and families are all welcome. If you know in advance that you’d like to adopt a market (or even a whole month of markets!) we can sign you up now. We’ll send you a friendly reminder the week before your adopted market, and include your official volunteer photo in the Woodbine Farmers’ Market newsletter the week after.
Below is a list of all volunteer opportunities and market days from May through October 2011:
Openers (8:00-10:00am): Calling all early birds! Openers will arrive at Coleman Community Center at 8:00 to help vendors and the market manager arrange tables and merchandise. You’ll also stick around once the market begins to help run the main table and assist the market manager. Two openers needed per market.
Closers (10:30am-12:30pm): Sleep in, read the paper, and then head to the Woodbine Farmers’ Market! Closers will assist the market manager, run the main table, and help breakdown when the market ends at noon. Two closers needed per market.
