Members of Common Ground’s staff and faculty work hard and enjoy the fruits of our labor.
Common Ground is accepting applications for a Mobile Market Manager to head up the 2021 Season of our Mobile Farm Stand. The Mobile Market is a farmstand on wheels that brings fresh produce from Connecticut farms directly to New Haven neighborhoods, along with cooking demonstrations and tastings of local, fresh fruits and vegetables. From July-Early November, the Mobile Market visits areas throughout New Haven that face food insecurity and don’t have access to farmers markets or fresh fruits and vegetables at local stores.
The Mobile Market assistant will support the Market Manager in driving the Mobile Market truck to the scheduled sites, setting up tables, displaying produce and interacting with customers to promote healthful eating, explain SNAP, WIC and FMNP benefits, and selling produce. They will also co-supervise our Summer youth apprentices in market activities.
