In a few months my typical Saturday mornings will include a trip to the farmers’ market, but right now it’s not happening. They may keep the market going indoors, but it’s just not the same. Farmers’ markets have always been a thing, but they’ve surged in popularity over the past decade–especially in urban centers. As more and more markets pop up, they can all gain by banding together. That’s what Mass Farmers Markets is about. They are a Waltham, MA based non-profit that aims “to partner with farmers, consumers, and communities to foster, enhance and sustain farmers market in Massachusetts in order to improve regional farm viability, consumer nutrition, and community social and economic development.”
Mass Farmers Markets directly manages a few markets, but they also provide “support services to all Massachusetts farmers markets and the communities that host them.” This can range from getting a market started to helping vendors accept the SNAP program (formerly food stamps). The organization has been around since 1978, so they have a lot of experience when it comes for bringing farm fresh food directly to the people who consume it. If you’d like to help them with that, check out Mass Farmers Markets’ Careers page. Their site is kind of weird, so I can’t link directly to the page, but you’ll find it under their Contact tab. Actually, it doesn’t even really matter since the only job available with Mass Farmers Markets isn’t even posted there–it’s posted on Idealist and it’s a Program Coordinator position.
