Share your writing or photographer's voice with the Montavilla Farmers Market Community! Your content will be shared via an online blog, an e-newsletter, and facebook. Take pictures on market day, interview vendors about their favorite product, visit a vendor's farm and write about your experience, share recipes (or customer's recipes)... or any other idea that you have to create interest and excitement around the MFM. The market is 10-2 on Sundays (May 15 - October 30), but you can write anytime! A great opportunity to contribute to your local community while sharing your unique perspective and voice!
Market Highlights Coordinator
Briefly interview 5 to 7 vendors at market about what products they will bring the following week. Write 1-2 paragraphs featuring these items to be used on the market's website, e-news, and social media for promoting the next market day.
Our website and weekly e-news are seen by hundreds of people each week, and writing for them is a great way to get involved at the market! Do you have any favorite market items you'd like to write about? Want to research and write an article about a topic that relates to the market? Support the vision of the market with your creative ideas and writing skills and volunteer as a content writer for the market this season!
Be a virtual volunteer by using your online and social media skills to share news and photos of the market via Facebook. You'll be posting highlights of the upcoming market, links to articles and blogs on the MFM website, sharing and liking vendor posts, and responding to comments from customers.
Select seasonal recipes found online and write a brief intro or recommendation to accompany a link to the recipe for use on the MFM website, enews, and social media. Extra points to someone who wants to write their own recipes!
Do you love taking pictures of the world around you? Put your smartphone to good use and share your Instagram skills by taking over the official MFM instagram account!

Let's share the heart of the market with the world!
