Event Description:

Volunteer on at the Columbia Greenmarket. Help the market manager with cooking demonstrations, community engagement, and providing support for farmers. This is a great opportunity for an outgoing, enthusiastic volunteer looking to learn more about local agriculture and seasonal eating.

Open year-round on Thursdays and Sundays, this market located just in front of the Columbia University gates on Broadway at 115th St.,  serves a diverse population including university students, faculty and staff, St Luke’'s Hospital staff, visitors and patients as well as Upper West Side residents. While several of the farmers attend on both Thursday and Sunday, each day has its own distinct character. Thursday’s market thrives on the bustle of the work and school day schedule, while Sundays are more laid back and neighbors come out to do serious shopping.  Shoppers will find milk and yogurt, fruit, cider, baked goods, preserved fruits and vegetables, eggs, cheese, smoked meats, pickled vegetables, maple syrup, honey, fish, and focaccia topped with locally sourced fruit, vegetables, herbs and cheeses, a lunch time favorite.


Volunteers must have attended a Greenmarket orientation and be at least 18 years of age or older.
