Hiring: Farmers Market Assistant – Red Fire Farm
Red Fire Farm, an organic veggie farm with more than 100 acres in cultivation, is looking for passionate local foodies to work at our farmer’s market booths this spring, summer and fall. We’re looking to fill positions at our Springfield and Boston farmers’ markets!
If you’re outgoing, have an artistic eye for display and are happy to talk about how best to cook/eat fresh veggies, please consider applying! Candidates must be able to lift 50lbs repeatedly without injury and commit for the duration of the market season (May through Thanksgiving).
Our market assistants begin their day early at the farm in Montague. They load a box truck with market infrastructure and produce and setup in a timely way before the start of a market. At the end of each market, assistants return to the farm and unload their vehicles.
Market days are long and full of hard work, but these are coveted positions on the farm: the markets we work are a lot of fun, people love interacting with the public and bring back really useful feedback for the rest of the crew.
Compensation is $10/hr plus all the veggies you can eat! Our markets are all Tuesday, so you must be available that day. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with a cover letter and resume.
