The market manager is responsible for working with vendors before, during and after the market, for publicizing the market using various traditional media and social media tools and for coordinating volunteer support.

A complete job description including salary information for this part-time position is available at the Lassen Land and Trails Trust office located at the Historic Susanville Railroad Depot, 601 Richmond Road or by email to:  [email protected]

Those interested should submit a resume and cover letter by Friday, February 26th to:  Lassen Land and Trails Trust, P. O. Box 1461, Susanville, CA  96130 or by email to: [email protected].

The farmer’s market just completed its 2015 season at the Historic Susanville Railroad Depot on Richmond Road. During most seasons the local market features about 20 vendors from Lassen County and surrounding areas.  Fruits, vegetables, meats and prepared foods ranging from pies to tamales are usually available along with crafts from local artisans.  Music and information presentations are often part of the market, as well.

The market’s certification from the California Department of Food and Agriculture means that consumers are purchasing foods directly from the farmers and ranchers who grew or produced the products.
