Plymouth News: The story of Sharon Tolley as the voluntary Plymouth Farmers Market

Terry Davis

PLYMOUTH, MN - Sharon Tolley volunteers at the Plymouth Farmers Market, and her responsibilities include greeting new customers, greeting familiar friends, answering inquiries about the market, and ensure market operations run smoothly.

Outside, she talks with Plymouth Farmers Market's fantastic vendors and meets a lot of new people, which is a wonderful experience for her.

The variety of activities she has participated in as a city volunteer is what she enjoys the most. Some of her favorites activities include escorting seniors on field trips, serving drinks and making popcorn for senior movie days, and assisting with outdoor activities and special events, such as Halloween at the Lake.

Sharon Tolley recently resigned from the travel industry after 38 years of service, and she misses the personal interaction that comes with engaging with others.

As a volunteer, she enjoys meeting new people in her community and building relationships with them. Volunteering allows her to enjoy life while also keeping her occupied and out of trouble.

In mid-June, the City of Plymouth opened its annual outdoor Farmers Market, which has become a fixture in the community. Through October 6, the Parkers Lake Playfield Farmers' Market will be open from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.

It is located at 15500 County Road 6, and the items available for purchase are fresh, locally grown produce and prepared foods such as fruits, vegetables, and fresh bread, as well as oils and kinds of vinegar and other condiments such as honey and maple syrup.

Because Sharon volunteers, shoppers at the Plymouth Farmers Market receive a warm welcome, have the opportunity to ask questions, and have a pleasurable shopping experience overall. Please visit for more information about the Plymouth Farmers Market.
