FARMERS' MARKETS - RETAIL ASSOCIATE
We are looking for associates interested in working any of the following farmers' markets this upcoming season: Mosaic District Farmers' Market, USDA Farmers' Market, and the Georgetown University Farmers Market.
If you’re interested in becoming a member of our booch crew, it is essential that you are outgoing, friendly, and energetic. You should be flexible and able to problem solve when a situation arises. Because kombucha is still very new to many people and often requires explaining, it is important that you be knowledgeable about or interested in learning about kombucha. The farmers' market will go on rain or shine, so a willingness to put up with the elements is key.
Responsibilities in this position include setting up/tearing down our stand, serving kombucha to customers, sampling out and educating customers about kombucha, and operating the register in what can be a fast-paced food service environment. Our kombucha is served on-tap, by the keg, so there will be some heavy lifting involved.
The markets take place on the following days:
- Georgetown University Farmers' Market: Wednesdays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (March through May; September through November)
- USDA Farmers' Market: Fridays, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. (May through October)
- Mosaic District: Sundays, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. (April through December)
This position pays hourly.
Deliveries are a vital part of the Craft Kombucha business. We distribute kegs to a number of wholesale clients around the Washington Metropolitan area. Currently, we have deliver to our clients once per week, on Thursdays. In addition to our wholesale deliveries, we also do deliveries to our taproom location at Union Market. These deliveries take place each week on Fridays. In this position you will be responsible for both of these kinds of deliveries, as well as the preparation for said deliveries (checking that the delivery list and kegs are correct) and for returning empty kegs from our wholesale partners.
In addition to the delivery of kegs to Union Market on Fridays, the delivery driver will be responsible for the drop off and pickup of farmers’ market supplies for the USDA Farmers’ Market, which we participate in May through October. For this, you will need to load in kegs and a few additional items into the pre-packed van at the beginning of the day before dropping it all off at the market. Once there, you will meet with our farmer’s market staff/manager, who will unload the van and setup. After this drop off, you would return to the kitchen to complete the Union Market deliveries (which will also include various supplies for the market). At the conclusion of the delivery and farmers’ market, you will return to the farmers’ market to pick up the supplies at 2 p.m. Once the van is returned to the kitchen, the farmers’ market manager will take over the loading and unloading for the weekend farmers’ markets, and your day will be done.
As this position is for a delivery driver, it is obviously extremely important that you are comfortable driving our large van (a Ford Transit), and have a good driving record. Additionally, applicants for this position must be responsible, good with time management, and organized.
Our deliveries take place on Thursdays and Fridays.
