Market Central is a non-profit organization, that was formed to support the Charlottesville City Market, and the dedicated area farmers who bring the best in seasonal produce to the Charlottesville community every week. They are in need of several volunteers to help with the 2009 FARM TOUR program. The 2009 Farm Tour will be held on Monday, September 7, 2009 (Labor Day) from 10 a.m and 4 p.m. There are 5 local farms are participating. When you volunteer you will be stationed at a greeting booth at one of the farms, you will help with parking and literature and explain the basic details for the set up at the farm. Shifts can be in the morning from 9:30 – 1:00 or 12:30 – 4:00. By helping out you will receive a pass to see the other farms on the tour and of course some farm and market goodies!
Show your support for area farmers, and learn more about their growing practices. There are also plenty of other farm tours in all areas of the Piedmont that need your support!
