Market Muscle Group Volunteering
Is your club or organization looking for an opportunity to complete service hours? Is your business looking for a team-building activity and a chance to show community support? The Fishers Farmers Market is currently seeking companies and organizations to participate in our Market Muscle program!
By participating, your company/organization will enjoy the following benefits:
- A free 10 x 10’ prime location booth space during the date in which your company/organization participates in our Market Muscle program
- Public recognition through stage announcements, etc. during the date in which your company/organization participates in our Market Muscle program
- Recognition on the Fishers Farmers Market social media channels during the week of the selected market day
In exchange for these wonderful benefits, your company/organization will need to commit to the following:
- Provide five volunteers to assist with market set-up, customer service, and other activities from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on market day (can be split into shifts). In addition, the Market Muscle group will provide one dedicated, on-site volunteer organizer to man the Muscle Market participant’s booth space.
Contact us about your group of five or more people serving as Market Muscle Volunteers, giving you a chance to promote your organization/business with a booth at the market in exchange for providing volunteer support. Please contact Amy Crell, Volunteer Coordinator, by email or at 317-595-3484.
