The Junction Farmers Market (JFM) is an outdoor market that operates every Saturday morning from the end of May to early November in the Junction neighbourhood. Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, the market strives to provide local, sustainably produced fresh foods in ways that build community, support local food growers and producers, and promote access to healthy food for all. We will be entering our tenth season in 2021.
The Market Manager acts as an ambassador, representing the market in the community. They are responsible for managing the weekly Saturday morning markets and the Junction Night Market, a summer fundraiser that brings in thousands of participants.
For 2021, the format of weekly market operations (e.g. online versus in-person sales) and our ability to host a Night Market, will be dependent on COVID-19 restrictions. The ideal candidate must be flexible and able to adapt to changing circumstances.
Remuneration and time commitment:
This is a contract position from January to December 2021 (with possibility of extension). The overall average weekly commitment is 15 hours, though this may be more in the spring/summer and much less during the fall/winter months. The Market Manager is required to attend monthly Board meetings, the weekly Saturday morning markets (9 am-1pm, plus set-up and take-down) and the annual Night Market. Reliable access to a computer and internet, and a smartphone (for use during the market) are required. The remuneration for the contract period is $12,000.
