SO YOU WANT TO WORK AT THE MARKET??!!
We're a unique, local fresh food market, relentless in the pursuit of great service, value and quality. We take what we do very seriously and yet have great fun while we work. So you'll find when you walk into the Market, the music will be uplifting and fun, displays large and appealing, and staff buzzing around saying hello while stocking, preparing food or helping with questions. You'll find things quite clean too as we are maniacs about cleanliness and sanitation.
We've been doing this for 20 years at this very same location and most recently we were named outstanding retailer of the year (2009) by the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade. And most importantly about working here, you'll find that WFM has a low tolerance for workplace drama. It's either about the food or nothing at all!
We also offer many benefits to full-time staff that larger companies have—health insurance, investment plans and earned vacation time! Plus we've got a great benefit that no one else has—a 20% discount on most food here at the Market. You get to eat famous and healthy Market food EVERY DAY!

LATEST UPDATE! May 2013
Produce: Ever get jazzed when you walk into a fresh market and see the produce piled high? All the colors—the greens, yellows and reds—and how fresh too; coming right from the farm, especially in the summertime. Ever wanted to work helping to make those displays happen? This could be your dream job.
We have filled the previously advertised Produce Leader. Thanks for all the great applications.
We are still seeking more experienced individuals--a Produce Assoicate--with some retail experience to stock produce and to be an integral part of the team. This individual must love customer contact, have a great eye for making great displays, must be able to lift 50lbs with relative ease and must be able to multi task and move quickly from task to task. He/she must have excellent physical stamina as standing and moving on your feet for 8 hours is common. Must be able to work early 6:30AM shifts as well as evening shifts till 8:00 PM. This is a year round opportunity. Full time or part time.
Prepared Foods: We are looking for entry level prep cooks who would be interested in training and learning the exciting retail prepared foods business. He/She must have had some experience in commercial kitchens and must be happy, be able to take direction and read and execute a recipe.
This job requires physical stamina. Specific shift hours for both include weekend hours, some evening hours (till 7-7:30pm or even 8 on Friday nights in the summer) and some early morning hours (6:30am). Full time/ part time hours. He/She must have some experience in high volume commercial kitchens and must not be bothered by working in a very busy, tight work space.
Dishwasher: Part and Full time positions. Since we are a busy fresh foods market our kitchen is busy; we crank out plenty of dirty dishes! And while many folks may think that dish washing is akin to being the lowest man on the totem pole, that's not the case here at WFM. Our dishwashing crew are the kings and queens of the castle. Without great dish washers, our kitchen grinds to a halt.
We are seeking happy, organized and clean dish washers to join our kitchen staff. He/she must have good physical stamina, be able to lift 40 lbs with ease and must be able to twist, bend and stand in one position for long periods of time. We have a large dish machine, but pot scrubbing and small wares washing by hand is required. He/she must appreciate cleanliness and be able to work quickly in a busy work environment. It's a great part time and after school opportunity! Competitive wages and benefits. Shift requirements include weekend and late evening hours (8pm).
Stay tuned for more openings here, as they become available.
