One of the most successful programs ran by the market Young Entrepreneurs encourages kids 18 and under to test and sell their product ideas at the Farmers Market.
The program allows these young people to get creative with their ideas and then put them out for consumption at the market.
*The Farmers Market charges a reduced daily rate when they set up a booth at the market. They also cover the insurance costs with an umbrella policy for all Young Entrepreneurs. If available, the market will supply a tent thus making it vary affordable for the kids*
Where else could you get a booth with the potential of 3,000 to 5,000 people to check out your stuff?
Come on out and support the entrepreneurial spirit of these kids. This year there will be 5 Young Entrepreneurs at the Summer Market on various days throughout the Summer.
