Massachusetts: Mass Farmers Markets seeks Market Ambassador

10 May
As the summer gets closer, we’re looking for people to get involved in a brand new part of Mass Farmers Markets, the Market Ambassador Program! The Program is an innovative way for people to learn more about our local food system and how farmers markets support that system, by visiting markets and engaging with the market population. At market, the Ambassadors serve as the face of Mass Farmers Markets, informing people about our various programs, and encouraging shoppers, vendors, and market managers to support our work through the consumer membership program. 

It’s a great way to get out into the community, spend some quality time with farmers markets, and get to know what goes on at Mass Farmers Markets, including some of our great new projects that are working towards creating a more equitable, healthy, and sustainable food system.  

Qualifications

  • Sales, customer service, and\or outreach experience preferred
  • Willingness to learn about MFM services and programs
  • Friendly and outgoing people person
  • Familiarity and passion for local\sustainable food
  • Clear verbal communication style
  • Access to reliable transportation so that you can be at the specified market on time (reliable transportation includes MBTA, Car, Bike, and\or walking depending upon where the market is located)

Responsibilities

  • Table at least one market a month for 2-3 hours (highly encouraged to travel to more markets if you can!)
  • Engage shoppers and inform them about MFM’s programs
  • Stay up to date on MFM’s role in the farmers market community and our various programs
  • Report back to MFM about the market experience
