The Ladner Village Market could not exist without the tremendous support of our volunteers. Our volunteers aid us in:
- setting up of the market layout
- greeting our vendors on market days and directing them to the spaces
- aiding us with directing vendors to their parking lots
- manning our information booth
- sweeping up the streets at the end of the market
- updating our market signage throughout the community
Vendor parking Team
The Ladner Village Market is looking for five volunteers to join our Vendor Parking Team in 2018 to assist with greeting our vendors at the entrances to the market, directing them to the check-in station, directing traffic for unloading and directing vendors to the assigned vendor parking lots. The shifts would be 7am until 10am and we ask that volunteers be able to commit to a minimum of 5 of the 7 market days. The Ladner Village Market will provide traffic control vests. Due to the nature of this position, it is best suited to individuals who are 25 years or older.
Street Prep Team
The Ladner Village Market is looking for one volunteer to join our Street Prep team in 2018 to assist with prepping the village on market days. This position includes wiping down all seating areas and trash receptacles within the market area. These shifts are from 7:30am until approximately 9am. We ask that volunteers be able to commit to a minimum of 5 of the 7 market days.
The Ladner Village Market is looking for one volunteer to join our Signage team in 2018 to assist with updating our community signage over the course of the season. This position includes hanging our This Sunday and Today signs on our signboards throughout the community on Saturday evenings and removing them on Sunday evenings. These shifts usually take 1.25 hours and the volunteer would need a vehicle and drivers licence. We ask that volunteers be able to commit to a minimum of 5 of the 7 market days.
