Join our urban farm team

Put yourself in the picture! Take a look at our Internship pages and get an idea of what our staff and interns’ urban agricultural adventures have looked like in the past. Do you think you’d like to put yourself in the picture? Join Main Street Market for an urban farming internship. Apply for a job. Or, sign up for a Workshare and have your vegetables and eat them too.

Live-in Internships include options such as an invitation for an urban agriculture intern to live and learn with us during the growing season. Our intern will be involved in every aspect of our work—in the greenhouse and field, home and market—from soil amendment and seeding, through growing and weeding, to cooking with and eating the harvest.

Experience farm life in the city!

Successful candidates will:

  • be physically fit and able to work outdoors in most weather
  • dream of running their own (urban) farm some day
  • enjoy active transport, commuting by bicycle and foot
  • arrive ready to learn and contribute
  • be able to perform supervised and self-directed work, in a team or solo setting
  • submit resume, cover letter and 2 references – contact us to start the ball rolling
