Root Seller Marketplace Manager

Taproot Farm & Environmental Education Center

Taproot Farm & Environmental Education Center (Taproot) is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Our work is guided by our mission, which is nurturing care for the environment by educating, inspiring, and connecting communities to the land, to their food, and to each other in a holistic manner. Our work falls under three distinct but holistically integrated realms: Education, Food & Agriculture, Ecological & Community Stewardship.  Our programs include a food hub, a variety of food access programs and services, and a diverse slate of education programs. While Taproot’s work is varied, each of its programs stems from the central principle that healthy food, a healthy environment, and a healthy community are intimately linked and mutually supportive. With this principle in mind, Taproot’s programs support three impact areas: economic viability, restorative food systems, and environmental education.

The Marketplace Manager will oversee all food hub operations in conjunction with the Market Crew. This position will start out training for an extended period of time alongside our Executive Director to learn all aspects of the position before moving to our new, expanded space in the newly renovated historic Parker J. Noyes building. The Marketplace Manager is a diverse position. We are less interested in someone with traditional retail grocery experience. Instead, we are looking more for someone who has a desire to work within and for our local food system; who is interested in supporting farmers year round and on issues of food justice, food sovereignty, and food waste; someone with a deep desire to connect our community to local food; someone who is interested in leading collaboratively; and someone who walks the walk when it comes to eating locally.
