Booth Supplies volunteers provide critical assistance to the Market by packing and distributing supplies that are used by artists and artist assistants to properly display and sell art at the Market. Schedule Notes: This team works a few shifts in May and June, preparing for the Market, then begins shifts on each Wednesday before the Market opens..
Handyperson volunteers help make the artists’ booths retail-ready by hanging mirrors and delivering garment racks that these volunteers also help assemble. Duties might include attaching screws so artists can hang their work, moving tables and lifting boxes. Schedule Notes: This team has shifts that begin a few days before Market. Team Notes: We ask these team members to bring a set of basic tools along for their shifts.
Market Signs volunteers work before the Market to assemble and install signs, and after the Market to take down and inventory signs. Many volunteers will be needed only during dedicated pre-Market weekend workdays. This team needs volunteers who are somewhat agile and relatively fit. Activity includes moving from station to station, climbing a step-ladder to attach signs (and later detach then), and performing basic handiwork–tying knots, inserting signs into holders, etc. Minimal lifting. Most shifts will be inside a tent or under a roof; a few tasks may be done outdoors in the sun.
Assist the IFAM production team (Josh and Loni) with key market logistics before and during the event. Be available to help with a variety of tasks, including artist production needs, volunteer needs, onsite set up, delivery, offsite errands, etc. This team reports directly to the IFAM office on the hill. We’re looking for people who don’t mind a dynamic work environment with quickly shifting responsibilities.
