Third Place Commons currently has two open positions for the 2021 season at the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market.
The LFP Farmers Market, a food and plant focused market beginning its 16th season, is a friendly, well-established community of long-time vendors and dedicated shoppers. The market operated safely throughout the 2020 market season thanks to strict protocols and continues to offer one of the safest shopping experiences possible in a fresh, open air environment.
The market is seeking to fill two positions for the coming season – Market Manager and Info Booth Set-up Assistant. Read brief descriptions below and get full details at ThirdPlaceCommons.org/jobs.
Both positions will remain open until filled. However, priority consideration will be given to applications received by Monday, April 12th.
