What Does the Market Manager Do?
To assist it in implementing its mission and vision, and carrying out its overall responsibility for operating the Eastern Ingham Farmers Market, the non-profit Sowing Growth engages the services of a Market Manager. Among other duties, the Market Manager secures vendors and music entertainment, and coordinates with Sowing Growth to promote and raise money for the Market. The Market Manager attends all Markets, prepares a weekly vendor site map, oversees volunteers who assist with set-up, operation, and take-down/storage of Market booths, signage, supplies. The Market Manager also administers nutrition assistance programs, and generally engages with vendors, volunteers and customers in a manner supportive of a positive Market experience for all.
