The Fountain Hills Farmers Market is set to host the first of three Children’s Entrepreneur Markets this year on Wednesday, March 13.
There are 50 booths of children (ages five - 16) from over 10 local Fountain Hills families selling just about anything, according to a press release from Fountain Hills Farmers Market organizer Betsy Hess.
“It can be handmade food or art, any type of hobby, store-bought items, games or services,” she said. “The kids must do all the selling. Their parents are welcome to help set-up but strongly encouraged to stand back and let the children deliver the pitch and close the sale.”
This non-profit organization is helping kids learn business with firsthand experience, Hess added.
“So, I ask you as a community to come join us for a day of shopping fun, as young entrepreneurs showcase their creations at the market.”
The normal Fountain Hills Farmers Market vendors and extra food trucks will still be on site located at both ends of the Avenue of the Fountains.
The Children’s Entrepreneur Market tent will be set up to answer all questions about how others may participate in future markets in Fountain Hills or throughout the Valley.
The Fountain Hills Farmers Market is held every Wednesday through April from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 16831 E. Avenue of the Fountains.
