Harris Farm Markets will soon open its flagship store in Albury.
The 4450-square-metre store will be the largest within Harris Farm's portfolio, employing 150 staff from the local community.
"We chose Albury because it is the hub of a strong agricultural region with a lot of heritage - and it is home to some of the best producers and growers in Australia," Harris Farm Markets co-CEO Tristan Harris said.
"Supporting local is key for Harris Farm.
"We source from local farmers and suppliers, create job opportunities for local residents, and we want to become part of the community by supporting local groups, especially those that encourage kids to engage in healthy eating."
Mr Harris said applications for jobs in the new store were now open.
People wanting to apply should visit harrisfarm.com.au/careers. Harris Farm gift vouchers worth $100 will be offered to those who refer a mate who gets a gig.
To find out more about job opportunities, or about Harris Farm Markets in general, visit the pop-up stand in the QE2 Square on Friday and Saturday, October 2 and 3, between 10am and 2pm.
Staff will be on hand to explain more about the business and hand out free fruit.

"Harris Farm Markets particularly wants to welcome food enthusiasts to join the team and promises an exciting future for those who want to work supporting local butchers, cheesemakers, dairy suppliers, florists and fresh produce growers," Mr Harris said.
There will also be opportunities for customer service, dock workers, fork lift drivers and cleaners.
Face-to-face interviews for all positions will start from October 14.
"We want to hear from the best talent the Border has to offer, so if you want to be part of what we hope will be the biggest shopping experience in the southern hemisphere, give us a shout," Mr Harris said.
The business offers plenty of mentoring and growth opportunities, Mr Harris added, and all Harris Farm Markets employees are entitled to a 25 per cent staff discount on produce.
The grocer store will occupy half of the former Bunnings building in Young Street, Albury, alongside furniture giant A-Mart.
Construction is already underway, with the store planned to open in the new year.
Harris Farm Markets has 26 stores in its portfolio (including new stores opening in Queensland) and employs more than 2200 employees.
