Are you/do you know someone between the ages of 6-14 with a cool business idea? Do you want to learn how to sell that homemade product? Then the Kidpreneur Program at the East Lynn Farmers’ Market is for you!
Inspired by Leslieville Market’s Kidpreneur Program, our Kidpreneur Program will give kids the opportunity to gain experience being a vendor and selling their own goods at the East Lynn Farmers’ Market in East Lynn Park.
HOW IT WORKS:
The Kidpreneur Program will be led by volunteer Clifton Corbin, an author and local financial literacy advocate. Clifton will be supervising on-site and assisting the Kidpreneurs during their participation at the market.
Program participants will have their own vendor booth to sell their products on select Thursday afternoons in July and August at the East Lynn Farmers’ Market. They must stay for at least 2 hours, starting at 3:30 pm and arriving at 3:15 pm to set up.
We are asking participants to donate a portion of their profits to a charity of their choice. Many businesses do this to support their local community and issues they care about.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The cost to participate is $5.00.
WHO CAN APPLY?
The program is open to anyone between the ages of 6 – 14. Kids can apply on their own or in teams of 2 or 3. Parents and guardians must remain at the market for the duration of the program.
AM I GUARANTEED A SPOT?
Unfortunately no. We will do our best to accommodate everyone, but there is a limited number of spots available for the Kidpreneur Program at the East Lynn in 2022. We will be accepting applicants on a first come first serve basis. After the available spots are filled new applicants will be added to a waitlist and notified if any openings occur.
HOW TO APPLY:
Kids interested in the program are encouraged to apply by completing this form Clifton will reach out shortly!

Why is your product special?
