Some general thoughts on careers at Peak of the Market

Peak of the Market is very proud to “grow” vegetables and to “grow” jobs for Manitobans. Peak of the Market represents Manitoba family farms and is 100% Manitoba owned & operated. The last 2 years have “squashed” all previous sales records set in our company’s 75-year history. As a matter of fact, in 2016, Food in Canada Magazine named Peak of the Market in the “Top 100 Canadian Food & Beverage Companies”. A real honour and tribute to all our staff and growers.

People are our most important asset and when we ask them to join our team, it is our hope that they will stay with us until retirement. Our average staff member has had “roots” with us for 10 years with 13% of our co-workers being at Peak for over 20 years. Therefore, opportunities to join the Peak of the Market family are rare and are created mainly through retirements, promotions and sales increases.

If you like winter holidays, Peak of the Market is the place to be. Summer is our busiest time so we don’t “plant” ourselves on Grand Beach very often. We strongly believe that work is an important part of life and we should have some fun while accomplishing our goals.
