We're Hiring!


by Kate Rose March 28, 2019

It's that time of year again - hiring time!

We are Earth + City, an innovative and exciting food preparation company located in Toronto, looking for new people to join our growing team for this season (Late April / Early May to October). It is our mission to enrich the health and sustainability of our local food community and economy. We prepare healthy, plant-based food in tandem with the Ontario growing season. Our food is available at farmers’ markets, in local shops, by ordering online, or for catered events.


Working with Earth + City is nothing short of lively, dynamic, and creative. You will be working with us in our beautiful, bright kitchen (located at 88 Cawthra Avenue) preparing plant-based food and/or selling with us at various farmers’ markets, festivals, and events around the city. We are looking to hire folks who have kitchen and/or sales experience, and of course, those who are passionate about food.


The job requires both mental and physical strength and stamina, as you will be on your feet and moving most of the working day. It also requires full adaptability to varying weather conditions where you may be asked to sell at markets in rainy or cool conditions. If you are a person who wants to work in an energising work environment, who has initiative and drive, and who wants to spend time engaged in Toronto’s amazing food community, then please apply!
