We're Hiring a Farmers Market Manager!
RVMS is seeking a Farmers Market Manager to oversee all market operations as well as lead and oversee all outreach planning and initiatives for the market. The manager is the “go-to” person for vendors, consumers, and entertainers both during market hours and during the week in an administrative capacity. Additionally, the manager is a liaison for RVMS and its many community partners and City of Boston officials who oversee the permitting, licensing, and regulation of Farmers Markets in Boston. This position is a part-time position (25 hours a week). This position is available starting January 3, 2018, and includes one-on-one training with our current Farmers Market Manager who plans on working a few hours a week to train the new manager and ease the transition of staffing through mid-February.

Roslindale Village Main Street is driven by a partnership of volunteer residents, business owners, and property owners with a common investment in Roslindale Village’s future. Volunteers primarily participate in the work of RVMS by joining one of our Committees: Design, Economic Development, Marketing, and the Farmers Market Committee. Committees in each of these areas meet regularly and collaborate on focused initiatives to improve the business district, attract foot traffic and strengthen community.
Outside of the Committees, volunteers also assist in a range of capacities, from events assistance to office work. Please contact the Program Manager to learn more about volunteer opportunities.

Roslindale Village Main Street launched the Rozzie Bucks program in September 2013 as a way to reinforce the habit of setting aside money for local shopping. Roslindale Village Main Street now offers Rozzie Bucks in $1, $5, $10, and $50 denominations. Purchase Rozzie Bucks at the RVMS office at 4236A Washington Street during regular business hours (9:00 am to 5:00 pm) or at the RVMS Farmers Market in Adams Park each Saturday from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm. Think of it like buying a gift certificate to a mall — except these Rozzie Bucks are the gift of shopping local in our Village.
