This is a great job for a recent graduate, a parent, a retiree or anyone with an interest in food-access, market-farming, public health or community programming! Perks often include fresh local produce!
The Market-Day Manager is a seasonal role, responsible for day-of management of the weekly (Sunday) farmers market in Cashmere and occasionally covering management shifts at the Leavenworth Market. The Manager reports to the Executive Director and is overseen by the Board of Directors.
This position is a unique job for an energized person! On market day, the Manager is the main point of contact for our vendors and customers, so they must have great communication skills. The Manager will often be the only employee of Cascade Community Markets on site, so they must be a natural problem solver, self-motivated, and highly reliable. Our markets are an essential food-access point for our communities, so our Manager must be committed to the service of others.
We value work-life balance for our employees and our markets are family affairs, so we welcome parents to apply for the job and to bring their kiddos to market with them. Our markets are also growing fast and we may be able to accommodate additional shifts or hours for tasks that a Manager may want to gain experience in.
