Farmers' Market Helpers/Cooks Needed (Charlottesville)

employment type: part-time

Do something that makes a difference! Help sell "real" local food that is better for the environment, better for the animals, better for the customers, AND tastes better! Looking for help at the City Market Farmers Market in C'Ville on Saturday mornings. Need both cooks and 'front booth' sales people. Prefer those who are comfortable with both.

We are a heritage hog farm in western Goochland County who also vends hot food featuring the pork we raise []. This a part-time position. $10 to $13 per hour, plus tips and bonuses (generally will make upwards of $20/hr on a busy Saturday, cash payment at end of shift).

Ability to lift up to 50lbs and reliable transportation required. An SUV size or larger vehicle and a willingness to transport supplies to the markets is not an absolute necessity, but is a major plus.

Markets are rain or shine! Can't be afraid to get up early on the weekend or to work outside in the great out of doors.

Please note that most days this is a bustling and very fast paced sales environment. We are interested only in people who enjoy this type of activity and understand how to work with the sense of urgency required when things get busy. If you think you have this quality, then we are willing to train you, even if you lack experience. If you are true to your word, show up when you say and on time, and know how to hustle, we want you on the team and can be flexible with your shifts.

Note, this market will be ending for the season on December 21st, but we prefer applicants that would expect to not just finish out the season, but also would want to come back and work next April when the market reopens. Some shifts over the winter at other markets as well as some potential farm/prep work in Goochland is a possibility for those who might be interested.
