Please note that the Mercantile is open Thursday through Sunday, which means that the majority of our work hours are on the weekends. Days off are usually Tuesday and Wednesday.

You will have access to all Mercantile amenities: wifi, showers, toilets, hang-out space.

The Milkweed Mercantile provides meals for workshops/seminars, hosts Pizza Night every Thursday, lunch on Saturday, and Brunch on Sunday. We also keep a variety of delicious home-made desserts on hand. Our kitchen is open (we have no walls to hide behind) and so willingness to interact with the public is a must. Comfort in a commercial kitchen is required, but you do not need to have a lot of experience – we are happy to teach you what we need you to know.

We are looking for up to four interns. A minimum two-month availability is necessary.
