Job Opportunities

Job Description-Market Assistant
Tuesday Market seeks a Market Assistant for the 2015 season.

Tuesday Market is privately owned, community-based farmers market in downtown Northampton. The market will run from April 28th through November 10th, 1:30-6:30 pm in the 2015 season.

Market Assistant helps staff the market tent along with the Market Manager during farmers market hours. Market Assistant needs to have great people skills including good boundaries and clear communication, an attention to detail around numbers and data, and, ideally, a love for throwing a party (i.e. a farmers market) every week and meeting new people. It’s a huge plus if you already know Tuesday Market, either shop there or have worked for one of the vendors at the market.

Market Assistant responsibilities:

  • Staff credit, debit, ebt machine at market.

  • Track all data for SNAP incentive program.

  • Drive truck with market trailer to market every week from a farm a half-mile away. (Job candidates do not have to know how to drive a trailer, but should be comfortable with driving a pickup truck and/or a trailer and be willing and interested in learning. This part of the job description is not a deal breaker. So if this doesn't fit your skill set, but everything else does, you should apply.)

  • Set up trailer and market tent with assistance from others.

  • Take down the market tent and trailer at the end of market and drive the trailer back to the farm.

  • Help run any fundraising programs for the SNAP incentive program including the market spinning wheel.

  • Educate the public about any programs happening at the market and help run any data collection or surveys in relation to SNAP incentive work.

Market Assistant position is 8 hrs/week, 11:30 am-7:30 pm every Tuesday during the market season. Missing 1-2 markets during the season is fine. Compensation is $12/hr.
