VOLUNTEER & JOB OPPORTUNITIES
Essential. We Mean You!
Each day is unique and different than the first, allowing our volunteers and employees the opportunity to engage in a variety of activities. And we think that's pretty great.
The Frankenmuth Farmers Market functions with the help of a few key staff members to keep the tractor running (so to speak), while our volunteers help us with our big grandiose ideas like themed dinner events, weekly chef showcases, annual Christmas market, and so much more.
At FFM, it is neighbor feeding neighbor and everything we do centers around that mission. We ensure that what we offer feeds the mind, body, and soul for a well-rounded and healthy community. If you need to know what essential feels like – come work with us on programs that matter.
We're always looking for more people to help the Market with reaching its goals of connecting the community with fresh local food and fun. If you're interested in being a part of our crew, check out our current opportunities below!
