Volunteers - Where to go, What to wear and bring on the day


Thank you for volunteering. Here are a few tips on how to make your day more enjoyable and perhaps safer too.

Where to go on the day.

  • Macedon Village Farmers’s Market is held at Macedon Primary School; 67 Smith St, Macedon VIC 3440. Find a volunteer on the oval to guide you around and find your job.

  • Woodend Community Farmer’s Market is held at Cnr High and Forest St Woodend VIC 3442. Find a volunteer in the undercroft or on the ground to guide you around and find your job.

  • Alternatively call the volunteer coordinator Robert Bruhn (0477 073 343) or the Market Manger Katherine Bishop (0458 769 258) Especially if you have to cancel.

Wear clothing suitable for the day.

Work gloves.

  • Work gloves is a good idea regardless of the weather. We handle metal poles and tables with sharp corners, not to mention plastic chairs that can pinch your fingers.

Sturdy shoes.

  • Expect everything from dry to wet conditions.

Torch or headlight.

  • During the winter months the undercroft is very dark.

Sun screen.

  • Summer is great but can also burn you to a crisp. Latest research says we can get a sunburn in even less sunlight than earlier thought.

Loose clothing such as scarfs.

  • We do not have rotating machinery, but it is always a good idea to NOT wear loose hanging clothes as you might get caught on something.

If in doubt, ask.

  • There are many seasoned volunteers at the markets. We would rather you ask one too many times than one too few.

Happy volunteering.
