Work with Us

At Ellwood Thompson’s, we’re a tight-knit community of food lovers who work toward the same mission: To aspire to be the heart & soul of our community through a commitment to local and organic food. But it goes beyond that. We are a group of people that are constantly searching for the best local product, tending to our own gardens, recycling, volunteering, riding our bikes, sampling chocolates and spirits, playing in the river, and well…having fun. If any of this sounds appealing to you then you might want to consider joining our team.

To help grow our family of gardeners, cooks, creatives, healers and customer care folks, we occasionally seek talented, down-to-earth, quirky and inspired individuals to be a part of our Richmond, Virginia team.  Because we are a locally-owned, independent market, we don’t take the hiring process lightly.  Not only do we offer you the most delicious and healthy foods that this state has to offer, we also hire people that prove to be as passionate as we are.

Our full time benefits package includes eligibility for comprehensive health and dental insurance (with an individual option at no premium cost to the steward), short term disability and life insurance provided at no cost to steward. Store discounts are extended to all employees as well as discounts with local businesses we partner with and more.

If there are any positions that open up, we will be sure to list them below with instructions on how to apply. One final note, we ask that if you do turn in an application, please don’t give us a check-up call. If you’re what we’re looking for then you’ll know soon enough. Thanks!

*All applicants must be 18 years or older to apply.
