Marty’s Local is a mission-driven food hub / local and regional foods
distributor based in Berkshire County. We are working to create an alternative
to the industrial food system by strengthening and facilitating the links between
nearby, high-quality producers and area businesses including colleges, grocery
stores, and restaurants. The people of our region grow, raise, and produce a
tremendous variety of excellent foods, and Marty’s Local aims to make these
foods more accessible to all of us.

small and growing business. The job will include a wide array of projects and
tasks, such as business strategy, pick-ups from farms and deliveries to
customers, customer development, inventory and order management, and
developing and implementing systems to increase profitability and efficiency.
There will be regular opportunities to work with area farmers and to witness
firsthand how our existing food system operates.
The position will be tailored to build on the strengths of the student and
to enable the student to explore areas of interest whenever possible.
Candidates must be able to lift 50 lbs., have access to a car or consistent
transportation, and have a willingness to handle a diverse range of tasks. The
ideal candidate will be self-directed, independent-minded, and have a good
sense of humor.
