Time of change at Sequim Farmers Market

What’s new at the market is the search for a new market manager.

After eight fantastic years managing the market, this will be my last. An exciting opportunity has come up for me to work with local celebrity Katy Bowman of Nutritious Movement, and after much deliberation I have decided it is the right move for me.

It has been a great honor to steward the Sequim Farmers Market. During my time the market has moved off of Cedar Street during city hall construction, spent a few years in a transitional space and now has come to its home on the beautiful plaza.

The market is incredibly vital right now. This past year has seen an incredible increase of customer traffic, vendor presence and financial gain. I am proud to leave the market in an organized, thriving state.

It has been a pleasure to work with the City of Sequim, the Sequim Chamber of Commerce and the Sequim Gazette. All of the local organizations contribute and support the market in various ways.

It has also been an honor to get to know so many local businesses through the market sponsorship program who contribute so much to the vitality of our downtown and to the local community and tons of local talent through our music program.

Writing articles for the paper has been a gift to me. I have enjoyed interviewing vendors and writing articles about food and the market for all these years. I will miss having that opportunity and perhaps will try and make my way back into the paper with a new shtick.

That said, we need a new manager! This is a job for someone who loves people, community, has a diverse business skill set and isn’t afraid of some heavy labor involved in set up and breakdown of a big event each Saturday.

We need someone who is keen on organization, has a positive attitude, media skills and excellent customer service. It is a part-time position and we are accepting letters of interest and resumes, you can email them to manager@sequimmarket.com or mail them to Sequim Farmers Market, PO Box 1817, Sequim WA 98382.

You can find a job description on our website http://sequimmarket.com/job-openings/.

I will finish out this market season, with our last day open being Saturday, Oct. 28. Thank you all for your readership and I will see you around town.
