KIDS IN CHARGE

Parents are welcome, but are strongly encouraged to stand back and let the children deliver their pitch and close the sale.

Guidelines

CREATIVITY WINS

The most successful entrepreneurs sell products that solve a problem, are well priced, or that customers simply can’t resist!

Tips For Success

BUILD CONFIDENCE

As children learn free market principles by creating goods, engaging customers and executing their business plan, their confidence soars!

A farmers’ market…
run entirely by KIDS!

Starting with just 3 locations in 2017, the Children’s Entrepreneur Market has since hosted 59 markets in Utah, allowing nearly 10,000 youth vendors to participate. With the demand for this real-world experience at an all-time high, the market is expanding into 5 new states in 2023, to Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania, helping young entrepreneurs thrive for years to come.

2023 markets will be posted on April 1, 2023!

How the markets work

PARTICIPATION

Entrepreneurs ages 5 to 16 can participate in our farmer’s/craft market run entirely by kids!

PRODUCTS

Children can sell anything! It can be handmade, store-bought, food, games or services.

SELLING

At our markets, the kids must do the selling! They are in charge of all aspects of their business. (No bartering allowed.)

BOOTHS

All booths are a 10’x10′ space and families bring all their own supplies (table, canopy, etc).

PARENTS

Mom and Dad can help set up, then get to sit back and watch their kiddos run the show, all on their own!

REGISTER

Our markets sell out so you’ll want to sign up early! Registrations are required, and there are no refunds or waiting lists. 

Kids love these markets!
