BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Whether you are a member of the Lansdale community or an avid believer in buying local, there are many ways to become involved in the Lansdale Farmers' Market. Some of the opportunities involve the week-to-week operation of the market, while a few others support fundraising efforts to ensure the sustainability of the Lansdale Farmers' Market.
Community and Service
Counters: Once a month we count how many customers attend the market, for marketing purposes. Time Commitment: Once a month on predetermined dates.
Info Tent Staff: Each week volunteers are needed to provide customer service, sell market merchandise, and answer questions. Time Commitment: Weekly, flexible, approximately 2-3 hours per week.
Special Events Staff: The market hosts community partners and our own events for customers. In most cases we need extra sets of hands to assist with organization and logistics. Time Commitment: Varies.
Fundraising Staff: Volunteers work closely with the Lansdale Farmers' Market Board to provide outreach and education to constituents about how the Lansdale Farmers' Market supports local business and serves this community. Volunteers in this role should be comfortable speaking with businesses and/or individuals about giving and soliciting gifts. Training and support will be provided. Great opportunity for individuals who have previous experience in fundraising and development for non-profits. Time Commitment: Year Round, can be done on your own schedule.
BECOME A VENDOR
Thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor at the Lansdale Farmers’ Market.
Applications for new vendors are accepted on a rolling basis starting January 6th. There are two applications, one for growers and one for non-growers. We also refer to our non-growers as ‘Value-Added Vendors.’ We have a strong preference for food artisans who source local ingredients and whose products change with the season. For all Value-Added Vendors (food artisans and non-growers), a component of your product offerings must be locally sourced. Local sourcing means the ingredients were grown or raised on a local farm. Local sourcing does not include the purchase of ingredients, or items for reselling, from a local distributor or retailer.
We value the Farmers and Value-Added vendors who currently participate in our farmers market. The common reason to deny an application is that the market is not ready to support more competition in specific categories of food and artisan as listed below.
• Soap or body care products
• Goat cheese
• Pet treats
• Hot sauce, jams or Jellies
• Baked goods made with white flour and refined sugar
• Coffee Roasters
• Wood crafted products
• Landscaping plants
• Olive Oil or Cooking Oils
• Perennial plants
To submit an application, please contact to discuss your products and to have your pre-application questions addressed.
