Moss Street Market is looking for volunteers.  Volunteers are not expected to participate every Saturday. We ask that they fill out the application though, so that they can be scheduled. At the moment, I am most in need for the Information Tent, Green Team, and Coffee Tent.  Here is a link to our website which has a page explaining the various volunteer positions (Volunteer Information Sheet).  Please take the time to apply if you are interested. Volunteers are given a $5 Market Bucks coupon which can be spent on any vendor in the Market.  I also have a letter which I can send verifying the hours of participation a volunteer has contributed.
