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 6 new states in 2023, to Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Tennessee, Michigan and Pennsylvania, helping young entrepreneurs thrive for years to come.
Registration is OPEN!
Registration opens on the 1st of each month for markets through the end of the following month.
How the markets work
Entrepreneurs ages 5 to 16 can participate in our farmer’s/craft market run entirely by kids!
Children can sell anything! It can be handmade, store-bought, food, games or services.
At our markets, the kids must do the selling! They are in charge of all aspects of their business. (No bartering allowed.)
All booths are a 10’x10′ space and families bring all their own supplies (table, canopy, etc).
Mom and Dad can help set up, then get to sit back and watch their kiddos run the show, all on their own!
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!
