Saratoga Springs, NY—Local volunteer group, Friends of the Saratoga Market is launching a new Veggie Valet service for Saturday customers of the summer session of the Saratoga Farmers’ Market.
The valet service, which will begin Saturday May 5, 2012, will provide a drop off point for shoppers to leave their purchases while they continue to shop the market. When shoppers are finished, a volunteer will assist them in taking their purchases to their vehicle in sturdy rolling wagons, donated by Allerdice Hardware.
The Friends of the Saratoga Market is looking for eligible community organizations who would like to volunteer and assist with the valet service. Volunteers will have an opportunity to collect tips on behalf of their organizations in exchange for assisting market customers with their shopping bags and items.
“The Market is thrilled that the Friends group has decided to take on organizing this service,” said Suzanne Carreker-Voigt, Market Coordinator. “This is sure to be popular with market customers, especially when they are purchasing the wonderful garden plants available at the summer market. The service will make buying at the Saturday market easier and more enjoyable for everyone. The addition of allowing community groups to participate in raising funds for their organizations exemplifies exactly the sense of community the market is all about. ”
Organizations interested in participating should contact Sadie Puglisi, sadiepug@gmail for additional information and to secure their preferred volunteer Saturday of the summer season.
