Mobile Food Market - Friday Market Prep Team

Position: Mobile Food Market Prep Team
Organization: Mobile Food Market
Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia

The Mobile Food Market (MFM) is a year-round program that sells fresh and affordable fruit and vegetables to residents of HRM. The MFM operates in 12 locations across 7 communities; North Preston, East Preston, East Dartmouth, Spryfield, Harrietsfield, Fairview and North End Halifax. The communities have been chosen based on having limited access to healthy food, as well as community capacity and interest in supporting the market at a local level. The produce is selected based on residents’ preferences, purchased in bulk and sold at costs that are in line with discount grocery operations.

Join us in rolling up our sleeves on Friday afternoons to help prepare the bulk produce for sale at the Saturday market. The Market Prep role involves weighing and bagging the produce into smaller portions, dividing the food for each community, and packing it away for overnight storage. This is a great role for those who like to work with their hands and in a team environment. Coffee, tea, good music and conversation abound.

Where and When: Market prep shifts take place every second Friday from 2pm-4:00pm at the Joseph Howe Superstore, 3601 Joseph Howe Drive (second floor, near the entrance to GoodLife Fitness).

What you bring: First and foremost, you’re reliable. You have good attention to detail and enjoy working alongside others.

How we’ll support you: The coordinator will be present for all Market Prep shifts and will provide on-the-job training. Tea, coffee and good music provided!

Next steps: If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you! Contact our coordinator for more information. For more information on the MFM, visit, or check out OUR VIDEO here.
