No comments

Are you a food enthusiast who enjoys supporting local farmers and food producers? Join the Fairfax County Farmers Markets team as a Volunteer Market Manager! The Fairfax County Park Authority is currently seeking volunteers to manage the McLean, Kingstowne, and Burke Farmers Markets:

McLean: Friday mornings, 8:00 a.m. until noon at Lewinsville Park, McLean

Kingstowne: Friday afternoons, 3:00-7:00 p.m. at the Kingstowne Town Center

Burke: Saturday mornings, 8:00 a.m. until noon at the Burke VRE parking lot

The FCPA Farmers Market Program strives to provide residents access to locally grown products and create market opportunities for area farmers and food producers. Volunteer Market Managers provide necessary on-site support to ensure markets run smoothly, set up and break down supplies, enforce market rules, answer questions from vendors and customers, and assist with vendor selection and community outreach. This is a great volunteer opportunity for anyone who enjoys the outdoors, supports local farmers and producers, and wants to bring fresh and local produce to their community.
