Bona Fide Farmers Market/Event Seller Position:
I am looking for people who care about good food and drink to represent Bona Fide Potents and sell our award-winning drink mixers at farmers markets, pop-up shops and various events this year. The seller would be responsible for transporting all market gear, setting up and breaking down, handling money and credit-card transactions, sampling product and ensuring each customer has a positive experience. A food handlers permit is required (which I’ll pay for if you don’t already have one.) You must be able to lift cases of product and coolers weighing 30-50 lbs. You’ll also be on your feet much of the day. (Don’t worry, you’ll have a stool to sit on during down times.) A typical market day is between 6-8 hours.
Besides interacting with a great community of people and loyal customers, you’ll have generous samples of all the products we make in order to become familiar with them, employee discounts, tips and trades. This is a 1099-Misc position with the possibility of becoming part-time.
Ideally, this person
- is good with the public
- thrives working independently
- is responsible, reliable and committed
- has a vehicle and a good driving record
- is available on Saturdays and for the occasional weeknight event
- can start ASAP and work through September (bonus if you can work fall and winter too!)
- loves food, drink and cares about our local and regional food system

Our ingredients are local, seasonal and produced by people who care.
