Edmonds’ Summer Market was started 18 years ago by a group of volunteers from the Edmonds-South Snohomish County Historical Society. Today, the market is still run by volunteers, and all proceeds go to support the mission of the historical society and museum.
The museum’s market committee is in need of additional people to help run their museum sales (or white elephant) booth each Saturday. Volunteers of all ages are needed to help set up and take down the sales booth, as well as sell merchandise during market hours.
This year, the sales booth will be located on the lawn area in front of the museum.
Volunteer shifts are between two and four hours.

- Booth set up, 7:-8:30 a.m. Set up shelters, set up tables, unload truck and help salespeople unpack.
- Sales shifts, 7:30-11:30 a.m. or 11:30 a.m-3:30 p.m. First shift: Unpack boxes, meet and greet shoppers and sell items. Second shift: meet and greet shoppers and sell items; repack boxes at end of day.
