Volunteer Training for the MetroMarket

The St. Louis MetroMarket is a non-profit mobile farmers market that serves St. Louis area food deserts by providing direct access to fresh and affordable produce, meat, and staple goods and by advocating on behalf of these communities on issues related to food justice, hunger, and health.

This is an opportunity to learn more about the MetroMarket and what it takes to volunteer. We will break down each volunteer position and provide hands on training. This is a great opportunity to see if volunteering for the MetroMarket is right for you. 

MetroMarket Volunteers are a vital part of the St. Louis MetroMarket crew. Volunteers are involved in a rich variety of tasks and skills including customer service, produce display, quality control, community engagement, maintaining a clean and vibrant sales environment, and assisting with load on/load off.
