Volunteer at the Indianapolis City Market
The Indianapolis City Market is an integral part of our downtown culture—a destination spot unlike any other. With a three-pronged focus, the market aims to support:
Preserve historical buildings and landmarks
Short-term options to “test out” market before making longer-term arrangement
Social issues impacting nearby communities
Increase food access
And volunteers are essential to ensuring that we achieve these goals. Not only do we benefit from volunteer contributions, but our volunteers have the opportunity to connect with the downtown community in tangible, meaningful ways. And, together, we’re building a strong downtown environment that will thrive for many years to come.
Sign up for a volunteer shift in an area that interests you. Note: Some volunteer positions may require follow-up prior to serving.
Note: Volunteers aged 17 or younger must be accompanied by an adult for the entire volunteer shift.
Help us take care of the landscape and streetscape around the Indianapolis City Market. Activities include weeding, mulching, planting and trash clean-up.
2-hour shifts available.
