Maltby Produce Market (MPM), a subsidiary of Flower World, Inc. is the marketplace for the fruits and vegetables produced by Flower World’s team of growers. MPM is a thriving market. We sell our own fresh produce, small plants and herbs that are started in Flower World’s greenhouses, grape and fruit wines that we produce, fresh eggs from our own birds, numerous additional MPM produced items and other mostly local-area foods. A bonus to the market, for both customers and associates, is viewing access to our wonderful goats, birds and sheep that live behind the market.
The Market Associate position requires an individual who is high-energy, with the stamina to be on their feet all day. This person needs to enjoy interacting with customers; educating them about produce and answering their questions. Our Associates take pride in their work as well as the contribution that MPM’s produce is making to the local community.
Each day offers a variety of responsibilities, and these responsibilities vary from season to season. Associates open and close the market, rotate and stock product, maintain the quality of fruits and vegetables, work to keep the market clean and inviting to customers, tend to plants in and outside of the greenhouse, ring up purchases utilizing our Point-of-Sale system, move produce from our production facility to the store and much more.
We have a supportive, friendly, responsible team of employees. Everyone understands that they are counted on by their colleagues and they honor that with a commitment to being present and working diligently toward our mutual goals. We really like what we do, and we have fun doing it.
So, do you want a physical, active job? Can you lift fairly heavy boxes and crates with regularity? Are you interested in fresh produce and local farming? Are you comfortable working in both warm and cool conditions? Do you have excellent customer service and cash handling skills? Are you ready to make a commitment to a do-good, feel-good job? If so, please apply.
Experience in a market or similar environment is optimal. However, we are happy to train someone who is otherwise qualified and is enthusiastic about this opportunity
