The Wolfville Farmers’ Market is a vibrant year-round Market, usually with over 70 farm, artisan, and chef vendors. In response to COVID and social distancing restrictions, we are running a socially distanced Saturday Public market, a Market Store, and two online markets called WFM2Go.
We are engaged in the farmers market movement, active supporters of our vendors, have numerous partnerships with community groups, we are progressive in our programming and passionate about creating the best experience possible to reflect and nourish our community. We offer excellent mentorship for youth eager to make a difference in their community, while gaining an invaluable professional development experience. And we take very seriously all aspects of the Health directives at this time.
The role of the Wolfville Farmers’ Market WFM2Go Assistant will be to provide promotional, administrative, and logistical coordination of the evolving iterations of the Wolfville Farmers’ Market in the face of the COVID pandemic with particular focus on the logistics of the online store.
This is an opportunity for someone who is passionate about both food and community and especially the relationship between food and community development. It is for someone highly organized, creative and professional; someone who can both be comfortable and enthusiastic when promoting the Market; and also someone who can be on their feet working to set-up and tear-down a Market for a physically demanding workday.
Having positive, clear, and customer service-like communications with partners, vendors, the attending community, and volunteers is essential to the smooth operation of the Market, and also to its development as a responsive organization.
We offer the same respect to our employees, working to ensure they have a great work experience, gaining the skills needed to get closer to their own aspirations.
