Work With Us
Thank you for your interest in working with us! The Farmers Market Coalition is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to strengthening farmers markets across the United States so that they can serve as community assets while providing real income opportunities for farmers. The mission of FMC is “to strengthen farmers markets for the benefit of farmers, consumers, and communities.”
FMC consists of a small but mighty team passionate about supporting markets around the country and the farmers that sell at them. Because FMC is a remote organization, team members are based throughout the country, collaborating through video chat software and phone meetings often. Employees and interns may be located anywhere that they have sufficient access to internet and phone service, and must be self-motivated and comfortable working independently.
Open positions are listed below:
Farmers Market Coalition (FMC), in partnership with Consultants Sagdrina Jalal (Lead Technical Advisor/Facilitator) and Nedra Deadwyler (Lead Researcher & Content Builder), is supporting the creation of an anti-racist toolkit for farmers markets. The creation of this toolkit will primarily be driven by a work group made up of and led by Black food systems experts, with FMC serving in a supporting role. The toolkit will both examine farmers markets at a high level, identifying the ways that policies and systems have contributed to making farmers markets predominately White spaces, and provide practical tools and resources for market operators to examine and adjust their internal structures and policies to be more anti-racist. FMC envisions this toolkit being structured similarly to the Farmers Market Legal Toolkit, with multiple methods of delivery (checklists, videos, case studies, worksheets, etc).
We are now seeking applications for Work Group Members. For more details of the commitment involved, qualifications, compensation, and how to apply:
