Farmers Market Manager / Host
The Farmers Market Manager/Host oversees and supervises the daily operations of a farmers market to assure a smooth and safe running market; serves as a market host; welcomes and engages shoppers; and promotes good relations between vendors, shoppers, and our company. The Farmers Market Manager communicates shopper feedback to Down to Earth Markets, helping to assure that the market meets the needs of the shoppers and their communities.
The Farmers Market Managers also help promote the market(s) via community outreach. They encourage attendance at the markets through a variety of approaches, including distributing flyers and meeting with community groups to talk about locally grown and produced foods. All candidates should be able to lift and carry 50 lbs, have access to a computer for social networking and emailing reports, and be available to start immediately and commit to work the market through May. This is an excellent opportunity to get involved with an experienced team that is committed to the farms and food businesses of our region. We encourage applications from people of all walks of life with a passion for building a sustainable food system.
