Now Hiring

Fiesta Farms | Fiesta Gardens

Want to work for an independent?

Fiesta Farms might look like any old grocery store at a glance. To some people. Who need new glasses. But we’re actually Toronto’s largest independently owned grocery store and garden centre.

What does that mean? It means we only have one store. But it’s a big one. “Largest” means we carry stuff you’d expect from a chain. “Independent” means we can choose to put special items on our shelves that people really care about. It means we have relationships with our customers, who tell us when they’d like something to improve and when they think we’re doing great.

Last but not least, it means we’re family owned and operated. And every once in a while, we need to extend that family. We’re not talking marriage here, just working together. Right now, Fiesta Farms is currently hiring for the following positions:

Herb Department associate 

Our herb and vegetable department has grown, so we’re looking for a new team member.

We’re looking for a friendly, approachable, confident, hard worker who’s comfortable both working independently and with a team.

The position is full-time from April to July 1st, and could lead to full-time hours in another department after that.

You don’t need to whistle while you work, but you’ll need to:

  • Enjoy working outdoors and in all weather conditions
  • Have a flexible enough schedule to work weekends, holidays, and possibly some evenings

And you’ll be doing things like:

  • Ordering plant material
  • Displaying plant material
  • Maintaining plant material
  • Sharing knowledge of our inventory

Knowledge of plant material isn’t mandatory but is an advantage.

Please note that:

  • Applications will not be reviewed until late February
  • Only those selected for an interview will be contacted

Fiesta Gardens

Fiesta Gardens is our friendly neighbourhood seasonal garden centre.

Role: General Labourer (Garden Gnome Extraordinaire)

Full-time + part time.

We’re looking for friendly, approachable, confident hard-workers who can follow detailed instructions, work independently and/ or in group settings in a fast-paced environment. You’d be surprised, the Garden Centre gets pretty animated in the summer.

In case it’s a deal-breaker, we thought we’d let you know right away that you must be able to lift at least 50lbs. Garden stuff is heavy and besides stocking the floor, you’ll need to do things like help customers take their purchases to their cars.

The position is seasonal, and stretches from April–July 1st, but there is the possibility of a full-time position in another department.

The right person for this gig will:

  • Enjoy working outdoors and in all weather conditions
  • Have a flexible enough schedule to work weekends, holidays, and possibly some evenings

You’ll be doing things like:

  • General maintenance
  • Watering plant material
  • Helping customers carry their purchases to their vehicles
  • Loading, unloading, and stocking of products

Being a plant wiz is helpful but not mandatory.

Please note that:

  • Applications will not be reviewed until late February
  • Only those selected for an interview will be contacted
