Ideal applicant(s) have experience operating tractors for field prep and cultivating crops, and/or have previous farmers’ market experience.

The key part of this position is driving from the farm in Plainfield, Vermont to our farmers’ market in New York City once a week throughout the growing season. The market run is a twenty-four hour commitment, but you will have a half-day off before the market run and two consecutive days off following market. Please note, we are looking for someone to cover the Wednesday OR Saturday markets, schedule is flexible for ideal applicant and you will never be asked to do both market runs.

Requirements: Farming experience, clean driving record and valid driver’s license, ability to lift 40 lbs, work smart and hard for 8-10 hours a day, and willingness to safely drive a box truck in a dense urban environment (training provided).

Compensation: Competitive depending upon experience, $15/ hour starting wage for tractor operation and market run. These positions are ideal for a person(s) who are ready to take the next step up from field worker, but not ready to take the leap into farm ownership. Working here you will get extensive experience at the country’s busiest farmers’ market, build wholesale relationships with the city’s finest restaurants, and learn the ins and outs of running a joint retail and wholesale vegetable operation. After your first season, the opportunity exists for profit sharing at the winter farmers’ markets, should you choose to stay on.
