The Milkweed Mercantile is looking for someone to assist in food prep, help with food preservations (jam, jelly, pickles & ferments), maintaining a clean kitchen, help with kitchen inventory, washing dishes, and waiting tables. If we get really lucky, you will also be interested in baking the many items that we sell - muffins, scones, cookies, cakes, pies and bread. Also included: helping with preserving jam, jelly, and pickles for the Mrs. Milkweed's line.

We cover all meals, lots of opportunity to learn about and experience sustainable living, and a $50 monthly stipend.

We request some restaurant/café/food service cooking or baking experience, and comfort in a commercial kitchen; professional kitchen skills; comfort interacting with the public; and an interest in sustainability. We're looking for maximum enthusiasm with minimum attitude - everyone washes dishes as well as cooks.

Workdays are Thursday – Monday. There are split shifts. Days off are Tuesday and Wednesday. We request a minimum three month availability. You must be at least 21 (for serving alcohol).
