Greenmarket Job Openings
If you live in the New York City area and love organic, sustainable farming, my friend Chris Gatto from the CENYC Greenmarkets, informs me that the Greenmarkets are looking for a few good people:
Market Manager Positions
Greenmarket is searching for outgoing, decisive, flexible, detail-oriented early-risers who are passionate about local agriculture and quality food. Market managers work outdoors, in all weather, managing markets in all five boroughs of New York City. For some positions, Spanish or Chinese language skills will be very useful. The position requires a basic understanding of finances with very good communications skills, the ability to think on one’s feet and the willingness to work long hours, weekends and holidays. A firm understanding of seasonal, local food and growing practices is beneficial. Agriculture is very seasonal in New York, and so is the job of a Greenmarket market manager. Hours before July will be less than full time, and after July will be 35-40/week with little flexibility for time off through the end of November. Managers may be responsible for multiple markets on one day and a single market another day, with a work-week that is not Monday-Friday (Saturday is a requirement for most positions).
