Our Activities

 
 

Market Ambassador 

Market Ambassadors help out in various ways at Saturday markets, greeting customers and offering new customers a guide, surveying customers and vendors about their views of the market, and handing out written materials to support the market.  This activity requires a commitment to attend the market for two hours on Saturday morning, 9:30-11:30.

Vendor Relief

 

Vendors who attend the market alone are there for many hours without the ability to leave their goods and get a cup of coffee, sit down for lunch, or whatever.  By standing at their stalls for them, We give any who wish the flexibility to leave their stalls for a few minutes between the hours of 10:30 and 11:30. This activity requires a commitment to attend the market for that hour.

Food and nutrition classes and demonstrations

As volunteers become available, classes to teach very simple recipes and how to use fresh foods will start.  Recipes with few ingredients will be sampled. Demonstrations, for example, on how to disjoint a chicken, or how to use a knife safely to chop vegetables, will take place either at the market on Saturday or at other relevant venues such as the SUNY Adirondack Culinary Institute.

outreach to SNAP recipients and students in the backpack program

As volunteers become available, fund-raising locally will match SNAP benefits for recipients who shop at the market.  Other outreach to SNAP recipients might include joining with other community services to offer support for market-based health promotions.
