Seasonal Vending Assistant

Jan Parker Cookery is looking for a vending assistant to temporarily work during the Farmer’s Market Season.  We have a booth at the Proctor Farmers Market and have participated in the La Paloma Markets, Tacoma & Gig Harbor Night Markets and other great vending events in Tacoma/Seattle.  Our food is fresh & distinct Filipino food. Our mission is to support local businesses in Tacoma by using their products. We enjoy being involved in the community.


Our food is carefully thought out and is presented with detail, not to mention heavily seasonal and reliant on what our urban farmer has on hand.  As our first seasonal vending assistant, you will be working closely with Chef Jan. We value satisfying our customers and building relationships. Jan Parker Cookery celebrated 1 year of being in business and has gained a loyal following.  The business is mobile and we work 100% outdoors, so we have mastered being flexible and staying organized.


The seasonal vending assistant position will help in setting up and breaking down for events, take orders, engage with customers, promote future events, and assist with serving and talking about our food.  Our business really kicks into high gear during the summer, but we still have fun. We look forward to hearing from you.
