Market Updates

Join us this Saturday from 9am-1pm on Hancock Street between 44th & 45th Avenues!

Along with
some delicious baked goods, locally grown meats, hardy winter greens, foraged goods and tasty snacks, you can come pick up vegetable and ornamental starts to fill your garden with some locally grown beauty. 

This is the last week of our Winter Market season. On May 5th, HFM returns to an every Saturday schedule, welcoming back many of your favorite foods and adding a few more!  We'll be back on an 8am-1pm schedule and in our full regular season location.  

See you at the market! 
The sun will be there and so should you!

Volunteer at the Hollywood Farmers Market! 

"Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in."

Interested in volunteering at the Hollywood Farmers Market this season? Come out to our annual Volunteer Orientation on Saturday, April 28th at 10am, at the Rose City Park Presbyterian Church at 1907 NE 45th Ave (meet at the office door on Sandy Blvd). We'll cover volunteer roles, changes to the 2011 season, and other information about the market, and do a short "rehearsal" of the market setup and breakdown.


volunteer guysThe Hollywood Farmers Market wouldn't be possible without the help of its volunteers. Every Saturday it takes about 20-25 volunteers to keep the market running smoothly. A few early-riser volunteers show up at 7 am to set up the market's equipment (canopies, umbrellas, tables, chairs, signage) before customers begin arriving. During the market, volunteers answer customers' questions, pass out fliers about upcoming market events, allow vendors working solo to take breaks, do crowd counts, and anything else that comes up during the course of a busy market. Then, at the end of the market, they take all our equipment down and repack our storage space. Volunteers enable our market to function and they make it fun!  


If you're interested in learning more about volunteering but can't make it to the orientation, no worries; contact Ari Rosner at 503-803-7279 or send him an email at volunteers@hollywoodfarmersmarket.org and he can schedule you and orient you on market day!
