If you are interested in helping out, getting to know farmers/vendors, appreciate a little great urban-outdoors and not afraid of a little physical work, then this is for you. It's a rewarding experience and our vendors (farming is back breaking work) truly appreciate the hand.
Volunteers are mainly needed during market season, shifts are....
12:30 to 1:30pm - early set up
2pm to 3:30pm - vendor set up
6:30 to 7:45pm - wrap/clean up for vendors and organizational
You can sign up for any length of time during the season. Some volunteers do the entire season, some do a few months or take a break and come back in the fall. We understand unforeseen events that may cause volunteers to cancel. No worries, just give us notification and/or coordinate your schedule with our schedule. Easy peasy!
Thank you to all that submitted to our first ever postcard design contest! A special jury selected the top three designs. These will go on to be posted to our facebook page for public 'weigh in' - aiming for March sometime, we'll send out notice. The facebook 'like' results will be considered by the jury (different from top 3 jury) in selecting the winner. Fun stuff. Stay tuned people.
Extended deadline! Nov, 30th, 2014 at 7pm
A few things: (full details on attached file)
Selected design will be used for promo/distribution throughout the 2015 market season as a postcard and possibly other modes of promo. Winner will receive $75 in TBFM vouchers to use with any vendor for the 2015 season, the glory and a credit line on the back. Wow, you say! The top 4 designs will be selected over the winter and next May they will be on display at the market for patrons to weigh in. The results from that will be considered in the final adjudication by a panel of judges (all distinguished community members I might add ;-) who will make the final decision. Plans are to announce the winner by the end of May 2015. Then they’ll be printed and shared with the world!
- Text for both sides is on the back of this sheet and must be adhered to.
- Clear and legible design that stands out in a crowd.
- Capture the essence of our unique community-based market.
- Brand colour is a vibrant “goldenrod”, re: our sandwich boards.
- Winner must be able to supply ready to print digital files & be available for any adjustments/support if required.
