The Bremerton Farmers Market is a fabulously welcoming and bustling market tucked among the trees and beside the sea at Evergreen-Rotary Park. Each Thursday from May to October we offer a market bursting with great vendors, music, educational opportunities, kids’ activities, and more. The market is responsibly managed with an eye to offering innovative programs and initiatives for our community. Our board is fun and forward-thinking, and we enjoy the work we do.

Qualified candidates have a passion for local, sustainable agriculture and the enthusiasm and drive to make things happen. We are looking for committed community members able to inspire others and build community relationships. We are looking for the following skills:

  • A background in finance, marketing and/or fundraising are strongly preferred.
  • Business or non-profit experience a plus
