come join us
If you have an interest in food, sustainability, community development, or farmers markets and would like to get involved, we’d love to have your help! We value our volunteers and have many ways that you can get involved and give back to the Market. Wherever your skills, talents and interests lie, the Bellevue Farmers Market would love to have you join our family.
InfO Booth and food access
Greet, welcome and thank market visitors. Answer visitor questions and maintain the appearance of Info Tent.
Help our food access customers get the tokens they need to shop at BFM.
Perform market customer counts every 30 minutes. Fill out What’s fresh? sheet. Offer to fill up water bottles for vendors. Support other volunteers and staff, as needed. Have the musicians arrived? See if they need assistance with off-loading.
Training provided. Consecutive 4-week commitment minimum.
Thursdays from 3-7pm. Please arrive on-site at 2pm on your first day for training.
KIDS “POP” Club Assistant
Help run BFM’s weekly kids program. Sign kids up / check them in at the POP Club booth, hand out $2 vouchers, run activities, and encourage kids to eat FRESH.
Thursdays, 2:30-7pm. If you want to help with a shorter shift please specify in the request form.
Adopt a BFM a-board, otherwise known as a sandwich board, during the market season. Be in charge of placing your a-board out in your neighborhood every Thursday morning and collecting it at the end of the night. You will be supporting our marketing efforts and helping us gain more exposure to our new neighbors in Bellevue and also those visiting our beautiful city in the park.
