Volunteers

Interested in volunteering at the Berkeley Springs Farmers Market? We need volunteers to assist in supporting our local farmers and assuring our community members and visitors continue to have access to local food. Volunteers are important from our hard-working Board of Directors (MCAFF) to those who help processes SNAP and debit cards at our management booth.

If you're interested in becoming a volunteer for our market, please contact Market Manager, for additional information.
