Volunteer With Us

At Port Perry Lakefront Farmers Market it is our mission to contribute to the success of local food growers and producers, to share the understanding that we as farmers, makers and consumers all carry the responsibility for developing a more sustainable food system and create a space for vibrant community gatherings. We want all neighborhood residents to have access to farm-fresh food and to offer a space to learn, build, nourish and be part of an inspired community. We thrive on making positive personal connections with our neighbors, community partners, and our farmers. All this would not be possible without the help of dedicated volunteers!
