Get Involved (Vendors/Volunteers)
Vendors and Musicians:
Our vendors are the heartbeat of the market. Without them we wouldn't have such an incredible market to present to the community each Saturday. While some of our vendors are brand new, some have been with us since day one 16 years ago. Get to know them in the following pages. We guarantee you'll fall in love with supporting local.
The 2021 winter market application process is now OPEN!
YLNI Farmers Market is run entirely by volunteers.
Market volunteers will assist the market captain in giving patrons an unforgettable experience at the YLNI Farmers Market! Some of the volunteer responsibilities include setting up/taking down tents and tables, assisting vendors, selling t-shirts, counting market patrons, placing road blockades, and having a great time yourself.
Whether you're working a morning or afternoon shift, parking may be difficult to find. So please plan accordingly to arrive for your shift a little early. During the summer, look first for parking in the History Center parking lot. Citizens' Square is also a close option. Once you arrive, find the market captain at the YLNI tent located next to the small mechanical building in the History Center courtyard.
Each volunteer receives a t-shirt and is welcome to shop around so long as the YLNI tent is covered. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
*If you know in advance that you are unable to volunteer, please consider changing your sign up to another date, but at the very least, please delete your sign up so we're not expecting you. Thank you for volunteering with the market!
