Lenexa Public Market volunteers are more than the friendly faces you see cleaning tables and talking with customers. Volunteers are vital to our mission of building and strengthening our community. Whether it’s to meet new people, enjoy live music or participate in special events, we’re sure there’s something to fit your interests.

“As someone who works from home full-time, it is important for me to get out of the house for my physical and mental health. I volunteer for the Lenexa Public Market because I really want to see the restaurant incubator concept succeed. Hopefully my small contribution will continue to make the Lenexa Public Market a place where community members and visitors choose to go and hang out.” Heather Harrison, pictured above 

Volunteer opportunities 

Volunteers will receive a Public Market T-Shirt to wear during events and is theirs to keep.

Friday Night Sound Bites

During our Friday Night Sound Bites concert series (end of April through end of October), we need volunteers to assist during and after the event.

Family Night 

Every Wednesday is Family night. We’re looking for volunteers who enjoy being around kids to help set up games (tabletop games, cornhole, sidewalk chalk and bubble machines), keep things clean throughout the event, and help clean up and put things away afterward. Volunteer shifts are any time between 4:30 and 8:30 p.m.
