Do you live in the Lubbock/Wolfforth area? Are you looking for a unique way to be involved in your community and grow in your entrepreneurship skills? DBB is looking for one or two Barn Assistants to work at their barn space at the Wolfforth Farmer’s Market on Saturdays. This is a year-round market, so team members need to be prepared to work in all kinds of weather. You will be the “face” of DBB in the Wolfforth/Lubbock area, and a reflection of the culture of DBB. Your regular meetings with Heather will be essential in staying in line with DBB’s core values and interacting with customers as a good fit with DBB’s desired culture. This is a great opportunity to work with many other local vendors at a fast-growing venue. You will need to have good people skills, as well as be able to manage details such as handling money transactions.

 

Lots of people think that gluten-free food doesn’t taste good. But at Desert Bloom Bakery, we aim to not only create delicious baked goods, but also to let people know that they matter. DBB serves many Lubbock area customers who are gluten free, dairy free, vegan, or just trying to eat healthier. Many people with food restrictions feel like they’re missing out. By serving delicious treats with a smile, you will help people know that they belong and are welcome here.
