YOU CAN HELP: Got some time to spare on Sundays?

(WSB photo from May)

If you’re going to the West Seattle Farmers’ Market on Sundays anyway – the nonprofit that operates it is calling again for volunteers:

Volunteer opportunity to support local farms and food access!

The West Seattle Farmers Market is looking for volunteers to help on market days with social distancing protocols and logistics, helping to keep our beloved farmers market running smoothly and safely for all. If you’d like to be a friendly, knowledgeable (masked) face inside the market, please fill out our volunteer application form! Of course, we’ll make sure you have time to shop too!

If you’re new – the market is open 10 am-2 pm Sundays in The Junction, on California SW between SW Oregon and SW Alaska.

    Everyone who reads this blog can help the Seattle Farmer’s markets. I spoke with the market manager last Sunday. He said that the mayor’s office is not working with the markets to help them be successful. Each market that’s open has its own challenges. But the mayor’s office  is treating all the markets the same. She will not work out specific plans for each market to increase access. It is very easy to email mayor Durkan through social media like Instagram or Facebook. Email her and please ask that she work with the farmers market’s to increase access. There are lots of ways to do that and still be safe.

      I asked market operators about this but so far they have declined to comment, so I can’t verify this.

Sorry, comment time is over.
