If you want to get more involved with local food and farmers' markets, why not work with us?
We quite often require managers or stand by managers for our markets. If there is a market close to where you live, it's quite possible that we need a manager to work there or to cover the existing manager when they are away. We also look for people to help with promotional tasks and administration in our office. All work is paid on a self employed basis and is very part time.
If you are organised, efficient, and enthusiastic, and enjoy working with people then you should enjoy the work. But you must be prepared to get up early as some markets start at 7 am. Some of the work is quite physical so you must be prepared to lift and move equipment. Working outside all the time means you must be prepared to get wet and cold as well as enjoying the warm sunny days.
Please contact us telling us a little about yourself and why you're interested in what we do.

Happy birthday to us. We're 20 years old this year.
We've welcomed broad beans, courgette flowers and green and yellow courgettes to market. Don't miss the range of beautiful aubergines, peas, artichokes, basil, spring onions, fresh garlic, young carrots and so much more.
We've extended market hours at Pimlico
We receive a lot of questions about packaging and plastic usage at our markets. It is an imporant issue that requires action from everyone. Read more to see what is being done.
