We are looking for a “Tourism Specialist” to help assist people at the Bellingham Farmers Market on Saturdays, Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Strong communication and customer service skills are essential, as well as having a positive and friendly attitude. 

Anyone looking to get more involved in the community and have fun all while on the job, couldn’t ask for anything better than working in local tourism!

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
