Farmers Market Vendor and Sampler wanted


If you enjoy people, food, and farmer’s markets, this may be the job for you!  We’re looking for a friendly, enthusiastic, and well-organized person to assist at our Saturday Farmers Market and/or do mushroom pate sampling at Twin Cities area grocery stores.

farmers market work – help other vendor during peak hours (9am to noon) at the Mill City Farmers Market.  Vendors are responsible for selling mushrooms and our mushroom foods, sampling mushroom foods, answering questions about the farm, accepting payment, and recording inventory and sales.

Market is from 8am through 1pm for Mill City Farmers Market, but we’re looking for someone to help out from 9am to noon, though there will probably be opportunity to work some full markets – including set-up and break-down of booth.

Sampling work – pick up sampling materials from our south Minneapolis homebase, drive to grocery store, set up sampling station, sample pate for a few hours while answering questions about our farm, then return.  Samplings are generally Sunday afternoon, and last four or five hours (including pick-up and drop-off).

Duration: All weekends through the end of October, 2019.  See our Events calendar for the confirmed dates of the market, though some may be added later.

Compensation: $12 per hour. You will also get a vendor discount on mushrooms and other market products – if not free product.

Work Location: The Mill City Farmers Market is located next to the Guthrie Theater and Mill City Museum in Minneapolis – at 704 S 2nd St. You can find more details about the Mill City market here.  Sampling locations vary from Minneapolis to Chanhassan.

Selection Criteria: Candidates should have some experience and/or talent in retail sales such as at a restaurant, coffee shop, or store. We’re looking for someone who is dependable, careful, and enthusiastic about food and farmers markets. We expect vendor to make at least one trip to the farm to get a training/tour of our production and methods.

Application deadline: We will hire as soon as we find the right person.

Application Details: Please email Jeremy at with a description of why you’re interested in the position.  I’d also like to see a resume and at least one professional and one personal reference.

Thanks for your interest in our farmers market vendor and Sampler position!
